Here’s my list of amazing things happening in Calgary this month. Well, I honestly cannot believe that is is already February. In some respects the year is going by too quickly already but then on the other hand, I am more than excited for spring to arrive. February is full of all sorts of goodness and I cannot wait to experience every minute of it. Check out these great events and please spread the good word of I HEART YYC to your friends.


All You Need is Love Market Collective: Market Collective is an independent market, created to showcase the works of local artists, artisans and musicians and to strengthen the local community in Calgary. Live music and DJ’s all weekend long. They will have local art, music, a photobooth, interactive displays, yummy treats, cocktails, DIY workshops and much much more! $5 admission! February 12-14 at the Chinese Cultural Centre

preSHRUNK Pop-up @ Bamboo Ballroom: If you haven’t heard about preSHRUNK before (I wrote about them for Avenue here) you will definitely want to pop down to this pop up!

The new location is absolutely stunning and the perfect place to decompress from the hustle + bustle of the city. Now Open at Fifth Avenue Place, 420 2nd Street SW

Juice Because: I am more than excited to have Juice Because in walking distance. This beautiful juice shop is the perfect addition to 4th Street; bright and fresh and serving up amazing juice combos, Juice Because is a great spot to get a boost in your health and nutrition. Their juicing cleanses are amazing and their nut milk is delicious splashed into coffee. Now Open at 342 15th Avenue SW
