Our NEMO Weekly is here to help you beat the FOMO, to ensure you NEver Miss Out on festivals and events in Alberta and BC. From music festivals to sports, crafts to car shows and everything in between, each week we spill the tea on what's happening in Alberta and BC.
We will also give you a taste of what you missed last weekend so you can relive some of the fun as you prep for upcoming weekend events.
We told you last week to expect a sun filled weekend and boy were we right. Even raincouver (Vancouver) had blue skies and some mean heat to beat, but this sun didn't slow down the festival scene and if you ask us it made it that much better because who doesn't like hanging out with friends under the sun.
We've got your weekly NEver Miss Out to help you stay in the loop for some of the epic events that happened this past week in Alberta & BC.
