As any true festie knows, some of the best festival experiences are the unexpected ones, the surprise discoveries, the spontaneous moments. There is nothing like being a festival regular for generating community, building tradition and instilling that sense of connection. But our brains also seek out the new on the regular too.
Not long ago we told you about all the festivals and events that are coming back in Alberta and BC, including some of the big ones you won’t want to miss, in this big list.
