What the Calgary Twitter Community thought of a Fully Licensed Olympic Plaza

by Sophy Kors · 0 comments

Olympic Plaza was fully licensed, but still open to all ages, for the Sled Island Music and Arts Festival. This is something we haven’t seen before in Calgary. It was the main site of the festival on Friday, June 24 and Saturday, June 25 2001. What did people on Twitter think? Looks like they want a ‘yes’ for next year.

Have something to add? Let us know what you thought in the comments.

Forgot to mention fully licensed & all ages..that means no beer gardens but braclets & roaming freedom #yyc #sledisland

@sledisland I really dig being able to listen to sweet tunes and drink a beer on the grass this year. Well played #SledIsland

Just left the Plaza. Great atmosphere and a great place to have a beer. Calgary Police Services and @sledisland team should be applauded.
