Things to do in Calgary – Taste of Calgary

Hello Readers,

I have been on a blogging hiatus for months now and I apologize to my readers. It sure feels great to be back.

What have you been up to? Summer is almost over but there are few activities to enjoy before Fall arrives. I will be doing a blog series on things to do in Calgary. I cannot wait to share all these activities, but first let’s talk about “Taste of Calgary.

Taste of Calgary is a one of Calgary’s festival where different food and beverage vendors showcase as well as musicians. The festival ran from August 10th – 13th 2017 at Eau Claire Festival Plaza. I love food and was excited to try food from different cultures. I just arrived in Calgary on the 10th of August but unlucky for me my luggage didn’t arrive with me. Thank God for the two=piece set in my hand luggage that saved me so I had something to wear for the festival. I wanted something free especially when going to a food festival, no tightness around the belly is allowed :).

In case you are wondering admission is free, once I arrived it was so easy to locate the ticket booths stationed at different locations. You have to buy sampling tickets which costs a dollar per ticket and you could go as wild as you wanted. At first, my friends and I started with 60 sampling tickets and we went back for more.  From Jamaican food (jerk chicken w/rice and peas), ice pops, waffle pops, Brazilian food and well packaged caramel chin chin, it was well worth it.
