Dec 13 2019, 3:06 pm

After a year filled with ups and downs, we’re looking for nothing more than to end not just 2019, but also the decade, on a positive note.

And while Calgary’s city-hosted (and FREE!) celebration will be taking place at Olympic Plaza, there are plenty of events taking place throughout the city if you don’t want to brave the cold or the crowds.
