Visit a Farmers’ Market

Popular among chefs, home cooks, and local gastronomes, farmers’ markets have become an integral part of Calgary’s food landscape. Not only do these community events grant local farmers, growers, and bakers the opportunity to connect with urban folk but they also provide them with a space to show off their seasonal favourites. Here’s a quick list of a few.

See some of the most trendsetting and common wedding dresses in Alberta from the last 125 years. The exhibition features collections from the Museum of the Highwood, the Red Deer Museum, the Royal Alberta Museum, the Lougheed House Conservation Society, as well as numerous private collections.

Where: Lougheed House – 707 13th Avenue SW
When: Now until October 2

These Grammy Award-winners were the first in CMA Award history to receive Single of the Year for two consecutive years. Originally formed in Nashville, Lady Antebellum released their sixth studio effort, 747, in 2014 to critical praise for successfully venturing into poppier territory.
