NW Calgary's Authoritative (ONLY) 2013 Pancake Breakfast Guide!


What better way to get into the Stampede swing of things, aside from actually being down on the grounds putting back a bag of mini donuts, than heading out and getting your free flapjack on!


Stampede breakfasts are a way of life for 10 days in Calgary and this year is no different with all the pancakes, syrup, hash browns, sausages and boxed OJ you can handle.  A few of Stampede feasts this year are in the form of afternoon or evening BBQ’s so you're set free grub all day!


We have the comprehensive...and for all intensive purposes the ONLY dedicated NW Calgary listing of Stampede Breakfasts.  So start planning out your week now and if there are any events we have missed please feel free to comment below with all the details as we don’t want anyone to miss out!  We have also included a few events that are officially in the NE but west of Deerfoot and easily accessible for NW Calgary residents.


For more information about breakfasts across the city visit the Free Stampede Pancakes website at or download the app for your iPhone.

*SC Indicates events put on by the Calgary Stampede Caravan


Another unique NW Calgary event is on tap this weekend as the fast-paced action that is roller derby is set to invade the Olympic Oval!


Flat Track Fever 2013 will be the single largest flat track roller derby tournament event in Alberta to date.  On April 12, 13, and 14th, Chinook City Roller Derby will host a pair of single elimination tournaments, one women’s and one men’s, featuring teams from across Alberta, North Central and Western regions of the USA and BC.

There will also be co-ed and junior bouts to showcase the future of the sport!


Tickets are available in advance for a discounted price as compared to at-the-door rates and can be purchased online.


For more information about this tournament which is sure to be a memorable experience, click on the official website link below and come on out!




Another great NW Calgary event is almost upon us as the 45th annual Calgary Kiwanis Music Festival is set to get underway!


The Kiwanis Festival is one of North America’s largest amateur classical music festivals with over 10,000 musicians and speech arts performers participating in over 1,000 classes in 18 categories…and it takes place right here in our backyard at The Jubilee Auditorium and SAIT.


The festival begins on Monday, February 25 and winds up on Saturday, March 16 with the anticipated “Stars of the Festival” concert showcasing the cream of the crop from this year’s event.  The evening also features the presentation of the prestigious Rose Bowl which is awarded to the most outstanding performer of the entire festival.


For more information about the event including schedules, history, tickets and more, visit the official Calgary Kiwanis Music Festival website by clicking on the link below.





It’s not very often that a legend in Canadian music comes to town.


It is even less likely to have two all star acts play on the same weekend, but that is exactly what is on tap at the Jubilee Auditorium as both Blue Rodeo and Nelly Furtado are set to take to the main stage..


Blue Rodeo will play two shows as part of their 25th Anniversary Tour on Thursday, January 10 and Friday, January 11 and Nelly Furtado wraps up the weekend with a single engagement show for her Spirit Indestructible Tour on Saturday night.

There are still tickets available for both concerts but given the calibre of the performers, they are undoubtedly going very fast.


Neither act needs an introduction, especially one that would not do either of them justice in a short blog post, so for more information about the artists, tour information and more click on the links provided below.








Well the weather has been here for the better part of the past month so to go along with all the white stuff, the Christmas Craft Season has also begun!  Get ready for your fill of Christmas music, apple cider and of course a great selection of fine hand-crafted treasures and homemade goodies!


We will be posting updates most weekends on what events are taking place throughout NW Calgary; if your are part of or know of an event that we have not featured please comment below and we will add it to our growing list..


Craft fair shopping is a great way to Shop Local and support local businesses!

Halloween is almost upon us and with our unseasonable and certainly un-Calgary-like weather the past two weeks, more wee costumed ones will likely be looking for some indoor trick or treating fun.


We have compiled as thorough a list as possible with all of the NW Calgary indoor Halloween events.

It isn’t the same as going door-to-door of course, but even splitting time between one of these great indoor events and some traditional door knocking might save some parental strife and some frozen ghouls and goblins.


Besides, Superman looks pretty silly busting at the seams with a snowsuit underneath; ends up looking more like the Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man than the Man of Steel!


If you know of any other NW Calgary indoor Halloween events please post them in the comments section below.


Have a safe and fun Halloween!




Halloween activities and entertainment, including trick-or-treating, crafts and more, 3-5pm.



No activities, but most stores and Guest Services will be passing out candy, 10am-9pm.



Dress up the little ones for some trick-or-treating, 4-6pm.



6th annnual haunted house, donation recommended, not advised for children under 14, 6-10pm.



There will be Ghosts and Goblins as well as lots of treats, 6:30pm.


Who doesn’t love snowball…I mean football in the snow?  If you’re a CFL fan this is what the league is all about; as the games get down to the wire north of 60 the temperature usually drops south of 0.


Tonight’s matchup pits the second place Stampeders against the first place Lions in a game that means very little as far as the standings are concerned as there is no chance for either team to move up or down, but means everything as far as momentum and psyche is concerned heading into the post season.


The Stamps have had little success against the Leos this season, losing both encounters and with a trip to the 100th Grey Cup scheduled to go through BC Place, a win tonight would certainly be a major confidence boost for Hufnagel’s troops.


Another story line to watch is the return of Drew Tate after a lengthy shoulder surgery rehab, but both he and Kevin Glenn are set to split time behind centre.  On the other side of the ball, rookie pivot Mike Reilly makes his second consecutive start in the absence of starter Travis Lulay and Reilly hopes to build on an impressive showing in his first ever CFL start, a 39-19 drubbing of the Eskimos last week.


Kickoff is set for 7 PM tonight and tickets are still available so pack up your Stamps Snuggie and see you at the game!  For more information on the matchup and ticket sales, click on the links below.








The first snow-filled football game of the year can only mean one thing...the playoffs are near!


Today appears to mark that day and the game at hand gives you plenty of reasons to pull on your woollies and head off to McMahon.


The Ti-Cats hit town for the first time this year so that means Smiling Hank also makes his first appearance back in Calgary since the off-season trade that saw Burris and current Stamps pivot, Kevin Glenn swap teams. Arguably one of the most popular players to don a Stamps jersey, Burris should receive a solid round of applause for his first snap behind centre before officially becoming the enemy.


If that isn’t enough motivation (which it should be!) tonight’s matchup is also the Stamps fifth annual PinkPower game in conjunction with the Canadian Cancer Society, to support the battle against women’s cancers and help raise awareness. Fans can purchase special pink Stamps gear at the game or donate online.


Kickoff is set for 5 PM today, Saturday, October 20 and tickets are still available so gear up, get your pink on and see you at the game!  For more information on the matchup, PinkPower and ticket sales, click on the links below.
