We all know that Calgary is famous for its rodeo, but have you ever been to its carnival?
Circle: The Travelling Food, Beer and Music Carnival is on its way back to Calgary for a day of excitement, enjoyment, and entertainment this September.
A BassBus creation — partnered up with YYCFoodTrucks and Village Brewery, no less — the carnival promises to host multiple local and international musical performances, a bingo dome, over 14 food trucks, live circus performances, a 30,000 ball ball-pit (yes, adults are allowed in), and a site-wide liquor license.
- Treats you need to try in Calgary before the summer’s over
- Seth Rogen on board with voicing Calgary's transit announcements
- You can fly from Calgary to Vancouver for $169 this summer and fall
The release from Circle describes the event as “music festival meets carnival,” and for good reason, as performances will range from rock bands to DJs on multiple stages throughout the venue.
There will even be a Fast n’ Furriest Weiner Dog Race that will pit pups against one another in a footrace to take home the coveted Button Cup.
There will also be a Best Dressed contest, so you’d better believe that there will be dogs running around in adorable costumes.
The carnival will run from 11 am to 11 pm on Saturday, September 8 at Shaw Millennium Park, and tickets are currently going for $35.
Kids aged 4 to 14 can get in for free by using the promo code CARNIVALKIDS at the check-out, though only for a limited time — after those discounted tickets run out, kids will have to cough up $5 for admission.
Anyone aged three and younger gets in for free, though will not get to enjoy the beer garden.
When: Saturday, September 8, 2018
Time: 11 am to 11 pm
Where: Shaw Millennium Park — 1220 9th Avenue SW
Admission: Available online, $35 for adults, $5 for kids
