Thank you to the thousands of Calgarians who proudly bragged about Calgary’s cultural scene this year. You make Calgary better. Next time someone proclaims that Calgary has no culture tell them about the incredible art, food, fashion, festivals, maker-fairs, zombie walks, artists, historians, libraries, live music, all-ages theatre, dance, film, readings, poetry-slams, pop-ups, public art, art centres, wine bars, parks, cultural celebrations, community theatres, choirs, burlesque dancers, luchadores, puppets, youth scene, seniors activities, pow-wows, jashans, pancake breakfasts and fun that Calgary has to offer.
Thank you for letting us be part of your celebrations and share your stories. It has been unforgettable for all of us.
