Thing to do in Calgary this Fall

Whiskey Tasting at Kensington Wine Market
We love our wine tastings, but this fall, it’s all about whiskey. Check out the Kensington Wine Market’s tasting nights, focusing on rare whiskies that have been aged for more than 20 years from closed distilleries. You might discover a new old-school favorite.
Kensington Wine Market; 1257 Kensington Rd. N.W.; 403-283-8000

Heritage Park Historical Village
It’s your last change to enjoy the Historical Village as it closes for the season following Thanksgiving. Go back in time with costumed townsfolk and a collection of impressive antiques and artifacts.
Heritage Park Historical Village; 1900 Heritage Drive S.W.; 403- 268-8500

Calgary Collects
Fall means new shows in all of the city’s galleries – and until the end of the year, The Art Gallery of Calgary will be displaying rarely seen works of contemporary art acquired by avid Calgary collectors. Time to get gallery-hopping.
The Art Gallery of Calgary; 117, 8 Ave. S.W; 403-770-1350

Cooking Classes at The Cookbook Co. CooksCool weather calls for hearty, home-cooked meals. For some culinary inspiration, take a class or two at the famous downtown kitchen. Choose from a variety of options including couples nights, a class on how to cook with squash or the best of Moroccan meals (from $85). The Cookbook Co. Cooks; 722 11 Ave. S.W.; 403-262-3322

Autumn Birding Course at Fish Creek ParkNature enthusiasts rejoice: Alberta is the best for birding (a.k.a. bird watching). Get out and be one with nature (and the birds) this fall by taking weekly two-and-a-half-hour sessions, which include plenty of field trips. Fish Creek Provincial Park; 15975 Bow Bottom Trail S.E.; 403-238-3847
