Winefest is a trade show dedicated to the world’s favourite beverage, featuring hundreds of vendors, experts and educators who want you to care as much about the fruit of the vine as they do! Whether you’re an old-school aficionado who can identify a claret from a Beaujolais, or a vino neophyte who is looking to learn more about the subtleties of the world’s finest varietals, this will be an exciting educational event that will help you appreciate wine even more than you already do! Sip and sample from an all-inclusive selection of wines from around the world and savour delectable hors d'oeuvres. This event takes place February 21-22 at Calgary’s BMO Centre! 


You’re a drinker, Harry! This beer festival with a twist combines great lagers, ales and stouts with all the fun you'll find in Harry Potter's world. This may seem incongruous, given that Harry Potter is a “children's” book series, but fun fact: Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone was published in September of 1998, which means that the story is now 21 years old – an age when it is legal buy a beer in the US, and to have been able to do so for three years here in Alberta! This fun and lively event will feature the alchemy of great brews, fortune-telling, wand and potion-making and a live DJ who will help make the party feel truly magical! Robes, wizard hats and Hogwart’s school uniforms are absolutely encouraged. Raise a glass to Harry Potter on February 23 at Vagabond Calgary!
