Choose Yer Own Festival 2012

guerrilla marching band with homemade instruments 2011

I have a few things I look forward too every year...

Stuart McLean Christmas Concert
Folk Festival
Free Pancake Breakfasts
Any time Feist comes to Calgary


Choose Yer Own Festival (!!) I've posted about it a few times in the last few years.

Happening August 31st - September 2nd 2012

What is fantastic about this festival is you can do anything. It's like a weekend to be, do, create whatever you desire. Some of the things done last year were:

Insomniac’s Art Party
Stay up making art all night with Bogdan, who believes that insomnia and art go together like dogs and bones. Whatever state your skill is in and whatever form it takes, come spend the night making art, watching movies and cooking food, in an attempt to focus on the relationship between insomnia and art.

Duct Tape Duels
Make your own padded sword and wage war against friend and foe to the sounds of pummeling drums.

Pajama Making Workshop
Skipped out on Home Ec.? Interested in dinosaur-print flannel loungewear? Learn the art of pajama-making from a mother of four.

Jurassic Park: The Ride
Universal Studios comes North! Follow a tour guide through the Jurrasic Park of your dreams. Raptor shooting range, full-sized inflatable garbage bag dinos, suspense and mystery… it will be the best!!! Bring your bikes or something to roll on.

and that's only a few of the creative and fantastic things to expect. Each year is different and it reminds us to love the city we live in, the people we know and don't know yet and just to play as long as you can.

NOTE: I haven't seen a schedule for this yet so check back at Choose Yer Own Festival often for the publication of it and subscribe to their blog. Enjoy! xxoo
