Best Music Festival
(I couldn’t decide, so I picked three!)

Sled Island
June 24-27th

This is a festival based on local independent artists and groups to share the stage with national and international independent artist. Lots of different ways to check out the shows. 99$/festival pass. $199/VIP Pass. Main site only passes and limited individual show tickets. Some of my favorites are Axis of Conversation, The Breeders, and Holy F*ck. Some buzzworthy Calgary bands are the Women and Hot Little Rocket,

Folk Fest
July 23rd and 26th

The Festival which takes place on Prices Island Park.If you are like me and sorta new to folk music, their website is amazing because it has a media player with songs from each and every artist. Some of my favorites include: Michael Franti and Spearhead, Sarah Harmer, Steven Page and Chad Van Gaalen.

Jazz Fest
June 22-28th.

Venues all over the city.
This is a great festival and timely for father’s day.

Romeo and Juliet, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, The Complete Works of William Shakespeare Abridged and Shakespeare’s in Love.

Best Food Festival

Streets Fests
These are great because you can get out and try lots of different food and they are all free! What is better? A couple of tips include: leave the strollers and pets at home.

Calgary Greek Festival (June 19th-21st)
Kensington Sun & Salsa Festival (July 19th)
Inglewood Sunfest (August 1st)
Calgary Street Performers Festival (August 1st)

Smelliest Festival
Bohemia ’09
August 8th
According to their website there are “no rules about how one must behave or express oneself-just the idea that everyone needs to share a raw unfiltered experience of being their real self.”

Or…don’t shower and you will belong.

Best Festival In A Barn
96th Barn Birthday Celebration & Family Festival
June 27th
Stuff for the whole family including magicians and a barn dance and dinner. And you get to camp right on site….you can really enjoy the night!

Most Mysterious Festival.
The Virgin Music Fest.

Will there even be one?
Since they haven’t acknowledge that there will actually be a festival, this has become Calgary’s most mysterious festival. Heck we don’t even know if it will be in Calgary.
