Calgary is at its quirkiest (and coolest) during the annual Beakerhead event, which returns from September 13th to 17th. This year, there are more than 60 science, arts or engineering related activities and exhibitions to choose from, including a six-storey escape room in the Central Library, a building filled with 5,000 white balloons and a fire show with a 168-foot long "serpent mother" at Fort Calgary. You can even try some special engineered eats and cocktails at around 25 local restaurants and bars, including The Coup, Avec Bistro, Burger 320, The Beltliner and more.
