Like Our Facebook Page
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.
The sun was out and the stars still came out to play for us at festivals around Alberta & BC this weekend.
We’ve got sunny, muddy, music, and art-filled days coming to the festival scene in Western Canada this week and the only challenge you will have is deciding which of the amazing festivals and events you want to attend this weekend.
Check out some of the live videos and epic action shots from last week's festivals and then let’s look forward to what is in store for us this weekend.
Relive the fun with these event recaps
It was a good weekend in St Alberta this weekend. The cars were freshly waxed and showed off by their proud owners. There were even a few burnouts to truly show off the power that some of these cars were capable of putting out on the asphalt.
Edmonton Folk Fest
We got lucky to have one of our own Seekers Ambassadors at the Edmonton Folk Fest this weekend! Seekers Ambassador, Darian Cannard, gave us a little tour of the festival ground and a taste of some of the performers that took the stage at Gallagher Park.
Wapiti Music Fest
We can not talk about this weekend's festivals without talking about the Wapiti Music Festival in Fernie because we loved seeing Leather Apron Revival playing on a stage surrounded by mountains.
