4th street lilac festivalThe 4th Street Lilac Festival has been a Calgary tradition for a quarter century, and we’re super excited to shed the layers, get outside and enjoy some sunshine (take note weather: we said sun, not snow).

And, of course, shopping. This favourite florally named festival transforms 4th Street into a massive (and free!) outdoor market with more than 500 vendors hocking crafts, beautiful artwork and food. With six stages set for at least 20 performances, it’s also the perfect place to check out some homegrown, musical talent.
Get out there Calgary and celebrate spring; we deserve this. —Sara Samson
