An Urban Picnic Experience

by Downtown Calgary · 0 comments


Thanks again to everyone who joined us at our very first Pop-Up Picnic of 2015. We had a great time at the Bankers Hall “Turtle Park” and we were very happy to be joined by Jazz YYC, the Calgary Chess Club, Chocolaterie Bernard Callebaut Bankers Hall, and Good Earth Cafe. We had a great turnout and we are very excited for the rest of the seasons.

If you haven’t been to one of our Pop-Up Picnics yet, join us at a new public space every other Wednesday from Noon to 1pm until the end of September. See here for a full list of Pop-Up Picnic dates and locations.

Now that you know the where and when, check out these upcoming picnic themes:
