"Festival" is just another word for a great big party – and you're invited! The city's music and culture festivals are the high point of the year for many Calgarians.

If the arts are your thing, be sure to take in the Nuit Blanche, Arts Commons, Wordfest, Hispanic Arts Society and the High Performance Rodeo. For music lovers, there’s the Calgary Folk Music Festival, International Blues Festival, Afrikadey, GlobalFest, the sweet independent music of Sled Island and many more.

In addition, most of Calgary’s grand old neighbourhoods like Marda Loop, Mission and Inglewood have their own summer street festivals, so keep your eyes on our Events Calendar and plan your visit to coincide with Calgary’s biggest block parties.
