Hey Calgary, we made it to April, cue the fireworks and patio beers! As we all cross our fingers for continued warm weather, the 17th Ave Retail & Entertainment District is gearing up for an epic Spring season on Calgary’s favourite street. From April 3 to May 28, 17th Ave will be home to ‘Business is Blooming,’ a robust calendar of events featuring four themes: Eat, Shop, Play and Explore. Each theme will occur for a week in April and again in May, and will be filled with events, promotions, specials and more! It is time to get on down to 17th Ave, support your favourite local businesses and say goodbye to winter!
This two-month long calendar of events will feature margarita classes at Blanco Cantina; carnival-themed entertainment, cocktails and eats at Honey Bar & Lounge; live music every weekend at Calgary’s very own Nashville-inspired Saloon, Whiskey Rose; private shopping events at boutiques like Mirra Masa and Ollie Quinn; La Hora Loca brunch at Heaven Restaurant; karaoke and trivia at Texas Lounge; Drag Brunch at Maven; health and wellness workshops and much more!
Not only will you be able to ring in Spring with loads of fun events at all your favourite 17th Ave businesses, but there’s also a little twist to incentivize you to get you out and support local. Starting on April 15, 17th Ave will be hosting a month-long scavenger hunt featuring missions along 17th Ave, which once completed, will earn you points. Each week, the top earners on the leaderboard will earn BIG prizes. Missions will include tasks such as attending one of the ‘Business is Blooming’ events, ordering a coffee at your favourite 17th Ave coffee shop, taking a selfie with a BUMP mural on 17th Ave and more. Stay tuned for more details, because this Scavenger Hunt is the perfect way to attend fun events and earn amazing prizes each week.
