Visiting Calgary & Southern Alberta

Spring delivers southern Alberta from winter cold, and communities from Calgary to Rocky Mountain House to Lethbridge are eager to get out and enjoy the warmer weather, welcoming visitors with countless festivals and family-friendly activities.

Spring means its time to get back outside and southern Alberta is home to some of the most astounding examples of the Great Outdoors. Just over an hour west of Edmonton, Canmore and Banff are ready to serve as launch pads for a springtime exploration of Banff National Park. Warm-weather activities include hiking and horseback riding and a glimpse of Lake Louise, the park’s crown jewel, is always a must.

On the first Friday of every month, galleries, venues, and eateries open up to showcase local artists, musicians, and performers as part of the 2016 First Friday Downtown Lethbridge series. Things usually get started around 6 p.m.

The exciting end of the 2015-16 NHL season is upon us, and the Calgary Flames are heating up the ice a few nights a week at Scotiabank Saddledome. Check the schedule during your visit to witness the action – the regular season runs until mid-April.

Beer lovers hop over to BMO Centre in Calgary for two days of beer, food, and entertainment on May 6th and 7th. That’s when the 2016 Calgary International Beerfest brings samples of more than 500 beers and all sorts of savory pairings. Tickets are available now.

As spring turns to summer, excitement mounts for the Calgary Stampede, one of Calgary’s most popular annual events. It's nearly two weeks of rodeos, exhibitions, live entertainment, festival food, and more, July 8th through 17th at Calgary Stampede Park. Don’t miss performances by headliners like Zac Brown Band, Lady Antebellum, and comedian Jeff Dunham.

In the meantime, Medicine Hat becomes a hub for smooth jazz, as venues like the Studio Club, Tim Hortons, and the Esplanade Theatre host the 2016 Medicine Hat Jazz Festival, from June 21st through 28th. It’s a chance to catch artists like Diana Patton, Guido Basso with the Prime Time Big Band, and the Kenny Werner Trio.
