Events & Festivals

Plant an Albertan outside long enough and a festival is guaranteed to pop up. ● Winter: SnowDays, a month-long festival in Banff and Lake Louise, celebrates the depths of winter. The mountain towns host ice carving and snow sculpting, special exhibitions and even competitive cardboard sled racing. ● Offbeat: In Calgary, Beakerhead is an unpredictable mash-up of science, technology, art and engineering. Prepare for fire, controlled explosions and accidentally learning things. ● Music: Pick a genre, and there’s a festival for that. Edmonton’s folk festival is legendary while Calgary goes fully indie for a week every summer. And country music? Oh, yes.
