This year's edition of the Way Out West Fest will welcome thousands of guests to the 12 events. The mission is to produce an innovative and world-class modern West festival that showcases, inspires and supports Alberta's rich western heritage. The goal is to provide a portal to an authentic West - think of it as a great mash-up of the Wild West and a contemporary Modern West. WOW Fest is anchored by two major events - the Head West Market and the Pure West Art & Artifact Auction. Think of Head West as the heart and soul of the West, where guests are invited to enjoy a full Out West experience. Over 50 West-inspired vendors will be there, expect to see rawhide braiders, wild rag makers, indigenous artists, cowboy painters, silversmiths and leather crafters to name but a few. As well, food stations will offer up West-inspired samplings and spirits and beer and wine will be available from our partners. Music by Amy Nelson, Markus Sommer and more throughout the day. Finally, what would an experience at the polo grounds be without a polo match? The Calgary Polo Club is setting up a match mid-afternoon specifically for Head West attendees. The Pure West Art and Artifact Auction concludes the three day festival on Sunday afternoon. If there could be a more quintessential way to end a weekend of western-styled celebration, we can’t imagine what it would be. Held at the Deane House this is an exceptional afternoon involving art, music, food and drink, and of course, western culture! Guests will arrive to enjoy the stunning grounds of Deane House, with its extensive riverside patio and garden, amazing views and the most spectacular outdoor dining space in Calgary. You’ll be greeted with a welcome West-centric cocktail, and served a selection of West-inspired canapés throughout the afternoon. Browse all of the events at the WOW Fest website!
