by Downtown Calgary · 0 comments



Mark your calendars for September 14 – 18, 2016 when Beakerhead takes over Calgary with a smash up of art, science and engineering both indoors and out! From citywide, pop-up engineered art galleries and flame-spitting, larger-than-life public art encounters to the entertaining science of … everything, there’s something for everyone!

While the streets erupt with free cultural experiments, there are exquisite ticketed food experiences, shows, performances and workshops to take in.

Those seeking to be the first to experience the latest and greatest will love getting up close and personal with the world’s famous and soon-to-be-famous artists, scientists, engineers and social entrepreneurs.

And, get this. Beakerhead says, “Yes, please touch the art!”
