X Warrior Challenge

  • If you’re into things like exercise and…working out and….being active…then you might want to hit up the X Warrior Challenge on Saturday! It goes down at the Stampede Grandstand and it is designed to make you work HARD. Here’s the page with more info: http://xwarriorchallenge.com/portfolio-items/stadium-sprint-5km/


The First Annual Red Mile Cup

  • Any road hockey enthusiast will LOVE this event. 17th Ave has partnered up with Calgary Corporate Challenge in support of KidSport to bring this road hockey tournament to the streets. It’s a 3-on-3 tournament starting at 10AM on Saturday and it looks like it’ll be a really good time regardless of if you plan on playing in the tournament or just stopping by to watch the action. Check out their page for details and registration: http://www.17thave.ca/redmilecup/




Stampeders Fanfest

  • This is your opportunity to celebrate EVERYTHING about the Stamps in the company of other Stamps enthusiasts. It’s more or less going to be a big Stampeders fan orgy, in the figurative sense (the literal sense would be too unsanitary). Saturday is the day,  9:00 AM is the time, McMahon is the location. Best part about it? It’s a FREE EVENT! Everything you need to know is on this page: https://www.stampeders.com/fanfest/
