What to do in Calgary: Week of October 14-

 

 

Friday

Rocky Mountian Food and Wine Festival

At this two-day event take the opportunity to sample an extensive variety of wine, scotch, import beer and premium spirits along with gourmet food samples from local restaurants and hotels.



Vowing to get rid of the hype and focus on artistic talent, Alberta Bound Tattoo & Arts Festival organizer Steve Peace says only the best of the best will be showcased this year. Whether people want to get inked from their favourite artists, research new ones or just peruse the talent and eye candy, Alberta Bound has no shortage of options. Lucky, the most tattooed man in the world, will also be performing his bizarre sideshow




Saturday

In A World Created By A Drunken God

Downstage presents this powerful drama by Drew Hayden Taylor, one of Canada’s leading First Nations playwrights. The play raises questions that transcend issues of culture, morality and history, cutting to the heart of what it means to be human in a world stripped of convenient labels and identity politics.


Food for Thought

Sample local food while meeting the farmers and chefs who produced and prepared it at the second annual Food For Thought. Then, cozy up for the premier screening of In the Same Boat, a Canadian documentary about the importance of local, sustainable food.




Sunday

Watch Me Move: The Animation Show

The Glenbow Museum presents the most extensive animation exhibition ever mounted. It presents the full range of animated imagery produced in the last 150 years — from Snow White and Mickey Mouse to Gollum in The Lord of the Rings


Wordfest Presents Public Art by Derek Beaulieu

Calgary Tower

Derek Beaulieu’s work is consistently praised as some of the most radical and challenging contemporary Canadian writing today.
