Most people know about The Calgary Stampede -- The Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth -- but, we Calgarians love getting together, year-round, to celebrate good food, good music and each other. Neighbourhoods like Inglewood (voted #1 neighbourhood in Canada by the Canadian Institute of Planners), Hillhurst/Sunnyside, Victoria Park, and Marda Loop host very successful community festivals. And our music festivals are emerging as some of the best in the world. Last year, Sled Island was one of TIME magazine's top festivals of 2014. I have a soft spot for the Calgary Folk Music Festival; every July, I participate in the "tarp run" and soak in the awesome atmosphere at Prince's Island Park. Every weekend between May – September, you can find a festival somewhere in Calgary.
