Get Out and Enjoy YYC This Weekend!

Posted on February 21, 2020

The staff at Green Calgary were discussing their weekend plans and, while the weather has certainly been playing yo-yo with outdoor plans this month, we all were excited to get out and enjoy the city. There was a lot going on last weekend because of Family Day, as we pointed out on our social media, but there are still some great things you can do in YYC this weekend!

Get Outside. Winter is slipping away from us, so it's a good time to try enjoying winter scenery. Some of us were planning on enjoying a little of that outdoor time, walking to our local parks, or carpooling with friends out to the mountains.

YYC Hot Chocolate Fest. A few of us have been trying out the hot chocolate fest this year. This annual event supports charities while showcasing the hot chocolate talent of some of Calgary's best cafes and restaurants! You can check their website or download their app to find participating hot chocolatiers and rate the different beverages that you try! Make it more green by going with friends (public transit or carpooling) and staying in to avoid the single-use cup waste. A truly relaxing and fun time that lasts until the end of the month. (Plus, Okotoks has a similar event this weekend!)

Arts in Calgary. If you've never gone out to enjoy the arts scene in Calgary, you're missing out. We have some great galleries, theatre companies, and shows of all types. We are always checking for new and interesting performances and shows, and there is something for everybody! You can check the Calgary Arts Development website for an extensive list of what's going on in the arts scene in YYC this, and every, weekend!

This is just a small sample of things you can do! Ask your friends and families, too, and get out to enjoy our beautiful city this weekend!

You can share what you end up doing with us on social media on TwitterFacebook, and Instagram!
