As change of seasons takes place this week and with that, we want to get more cozy as there’s a crispness in the air. We’ve found great things to do inside, but we start off this week with getting outdoors in two words: The Larches. Let’s go!

  1. September and October are Larch season, and this year there is a shuttle bus taking people from Banff to Moraine Lake to see the trees but cut down on traffic. They’re stunning and they’re world renowned. Check them out!
  2. Beakerhead is on this week and weekend, with plenty for adults and children to do and learn, both indoors and outdoors. Don’t miss it!
  3. On the 16th, the Flames take on the Canucks in a pre-season battle on the ice. Looking for tickets on the cheap? Check out!
  4. The International Film Festival starts this week so if movies are your jam, the 20th anniversary of this fest is yours to see.
  5. Get outside while there’s still time and see this coming weekend’s Parkfest. It’s a free, outdoor event for the entire family.
  6. Want to learn how to be a barista? In this three-day complete Barista Training Bundle Course, you can!  
  7. Studio Bell is showcasing Beach Season in their ongoing Alberta Spotlight concert series. They’re from Calgary, so they can’t get any more local than that!
  8. Get the week rolling with Date Night YYC’s planned bowling night at National on 10th at their Bowling and Brews event. Bowling and Beers, can’t go wrong.
  9. Halloween is getting closer, take the kids to Calaway Park on the weekend to see the festivities before it shuts down for another season.
  10. Your call! What are you up to this week that we don’t know about. Let us know!
