Inner-City Living Experience - Calgary Summer Festivals

Inner-City Living Experience - Calgary Summer Festivals

If you are not a ski bunny, an ice fisher, or a dog sled racer you probably live for the end of the arctic freeze and yearn for the cloudless swelter of an urban, prairie summer. Even if you don’t despise the frigid Calgary winters, the summer months are still a welcome respite. From rafting down the Bow and patio beers, to backyard BBQs and movies in the park, Calgary comes alive in the warmest months with plenty of outdoor activities. The inner city is host to some of the most awaited and exciting summer events. Let’s take a look at the inner-city experience- Calgary summer festival edition!

If you are looking to buy or sell in the dynamic, diverse inner city of Calgary, The Eklund Group is an expert inner-city real estate team. Contact our Realtors® for skilled and knowledgeable insight into Calgary’s unique living opportunities in the heart of the city. 1-403-863-7434.

Calgary Inner-City Festivals

Taste of Calgary

Foodies, mark your calendars. After a two-year hiatus, Taste of Calgary is back August 4-7 in a new location. Sample some of Calgary’s best-known gastronomic treasures and discover some hidden gems with a backdrop of exciting entertainment including local bands and musicians.

Chasing Summer

Chasing Summer is western Canada’s premiere outdoor electronic dance music festival. Featuring renowned DJs from across the world, this two-day festival promises to be bigger and better than ever. Chasing Summer runs July 30 and 31, 2022 at the Max Bell Arena just north of downtown.

Calgary Folk Music Festival

2022 is the 43rd Anniversary of this iconic Calgary festival of song and dance. Calgary Folk Fest is a family-friendly celebration of music, food, arts and crafts, and local beverages. The festival runs day and night from July 21st to the 24th with several venues on Prince’s Island Park. 2022 headliners include: Spoon, k.d. Lang, Emmylou Harris, Alabama Shakes, St. Vincent, and more than 65 other artists.

Sled Island

This unique festival brings together a community of music, comedy, film, and arts with over 40,000 attendees across multiple inner-city venues. Inspired with an independent spirit, Sled Island promises a one-of-a-kind music and arts experience for festival goers seeking something less mainstream.

Calgary Stampede

While it might not be a festival in the strictest definition, we would be remiss to omit The Greatest Outdoor Show On Earth. The Calgary Stampede is ten days of rodeo, racing, and rides right in the heart of the city. It kicks off with a world-renowned parade and runs daily, sun up until well past sundown. Take in the midway; impossible-to-win games and the flips and spins of rollercoasters. Feast on some delicious and terrifying treats (“those little donuts”-yum, “cricket corndogs”-um?), Visit the Grandstand for steer wrestling and barrel racing, chuckwagon races, and The Young Canadians evening show. Catch world-class musical acts at the Coca-Cola Stage. Finish each day with jaw-dropping fireworks displays, visible across the city. This is just a small sampling of the boot-stomping fun to be had from July 8th-17th, 2022.

Stampede Park is within walking distance for Elbow Park and Mount Royal.

A Realtor® who specializes in the inner city will have the experience and knowledge to navigate some of the unique challenges that can arise when buying or selling in the city’s core neighbourhoods. Zoning, valuations, housing type, offer conditions, marketing and more can be different for inner-city properties than for those in more suburban neighbourhoods.

The Tanya Ekland Group knows the inner city well. In fact, we ourselves work, live, and raise our families here. We can help you understand the amenities, features, and benefits of the inner city communities from Altadore to Winston Heights and show you properties in the perfect neighbourhood for you!

We recommend you consider the following: 

  • Do you want to bike, walk, or drive to work?
  • Are you someone who takes transit?
  • Do you need particular zoning?
  • Are there specific schools you would like your child to attend?
  • Are you seeking specific amenities like gyms, restaurants, shopping, childcare?
