Calgary is a huge city with lots of life and diversity! Spice up your life with some of these events that showcase the variety of cultural influences that make up our home.
CALGARY MAPLE FESTIVAL DES SUCRES
There’s nothing as Canadian as maple syrup, and no tradition quite as French-Canadian as tire d’erable, the “maple taffy” made from pouring warm maple syrup on French snow. If you’ve never tried it, you’re not yet 100% Canadian – I’m not trying to be controversial, that’s just a fact!
The Calgary Maple Festival des Sucres is produced by the ACFA Calgary, a non-profit organization that promotes French Canadian culture around the world. Taking place at Heritage Park, the Festival takes place March 3 and 4 and lets you learn about maple syrup and its production, participate in fun events that teach you about French-Canadian and Metis culture (including live music), and of course, enjoy classically prepared maple taffy.
