Well this was good news to wake up to! Former First Lady Michelle Obama will be speaking at event called “An Evening With Michelle Obama” (naturally) in Calgary on March 23rd, 2018 at the Stampede Corral!
If your first thoughts were: Michelle Obama! Followed by “At the Stampede Corral, really?!” You’re not alone. But in an interview with Global Calgary, Scott Crockatt of the Chamber of Commerce said they needed a venue that would fit 5,000 people. But I think demand will be much higher.
If you’re a member of the Chamber of Commerce, you have access to tickets starting on Tuesday at 9am, and we regular folk can buy them at 10am on Thursday. According to the CBC story, tickets are $199. But I haven’t seen that price anywhere else yet.
So as we wait to buy tickets, here’s one of my favourite Michelle Obama videos along with Billy on The Street!
