FATHER’S DAY | June 18, 2017

Sunday, June 18 many of us will raise a BBQ tong, golf club or glass to celebrate the special men in our lives.

To help you with your plans, we’ve narrowed down some activities downtown to suit the type of person your dad may be from adventurous, to artsy, to curious, to a foodie.

Trust me, these are all activities you’ll surely be happy to tag along and be a part of!

This year we see the return of one of the most exciting activities happening downtown – the Downtown Scavenger Hunt! This event is happening June 17 & 18, 2017. You and your family can have a choice of day to do the scavenger hunt or do it over both days to increase your chances to win big prizes with The CORE Shopping Centre.

For more ideas on what to do for Father’s Day, read our blog post Father’s Day Downtown.

FEEDING THE 5000 CALGARY | June 15, 2017

The goal of Feeding the 5000 Calgary event is to raise awareness about food waste and to show Calgary that we can Feed 5000 people with food that would have otherwise ended up in a landfill.

This idea originated in London, England, Feeding the 5000 is a global movement that sheds light on the issue of food waste. Since then, Feeding the 5000 events have happened in major cities in Europe and North America, including Vancouver and most recently Red Deer.

REASONS TO ATTEND

  1. It’s FREE food that tastes AMAZING! We want to serve anyone and everyone so that everyone can see that food we just threw out probably, and actually, could have been amazing!
  2. You’ll save money AND food! Not only because you’re getting a free lunch but you’ll have a change to learn more about how to help your food last longer and tips and tricks that can make that food bill a little lighter.

DATE & TIME
Thursday, June 15, 2017
11:00 AM – 2:00 PM

LOCATION
Olympic Plaza
228 8 Avenue SW

SEX WITH STRANGERS | June 16 – 25, 2017

After a 6 year hiatus, Attic Players is proud to make its return with the Canadian Premiere of Sex with Strangers by Laura Eason, playing June 16-24, 2017 at Motel Theatre in the Arts Commons.

THE STORY
How far will you go to get what you want? Will you be the same person if you do? When twenty-something star sex blogger and memoirist Ethan tracks down his idol, the gifted but obscure forty-ish novelist Olivia, he finds they each crave what the other possesses. As attraction turns to sex, and they inch closer to getting what they want, both must confront the dark side of ambition and the trouble of reinventing oneself when the past is only a click away.

SHOW TIMES
Tuesday to Saturday @ 7:30 pm
Sunday Matinee on June 18, 2017 @ 2:30 pm.

Tickets are $22.50.
