SWIZZ ♥s Stampede
Now that you’re primped and prepped for the great outdoors, head over to the Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth, July 7-16! Whether your style is more Patsy Cline or Carrie Underwood, whether you’re more Nashville North or Canine Stars Dog Bowl, there’s something for everyone at the world-famous Calgary Stampede. See you there?
SWIZZ ♥s FolkFest
Once we’ve all had a couple of weeks to recover from Stampede, the Calgary Folk Music Festival lights up Prince’s Island from July 27-30. We love chilling on our blankets and lawn chairs with our friends and family, catching favourite musical acts and meeting new ones. Incredible Inuk throat singer Tanya Tagaq will be one act not to miss this year. See the rest of the lineup at calgaryfolkfest.com.

SWIZZ ♥s Canada
Happy Canada Day! Check out the #Canada150 celebrations happening around our city, or take a trip to Blackfoot Crossing Historical Park to explore the history of our Treaty 7 lands, and catch the Kent Monkman “Shame and Prejudice: A Story of Resilience” exhibition on at the Glenbow till Sept. 10. There are so many things to see and do! Take advantage of these exhibits and learn more about our Canadian heritage.
Father’s Day is fast approaching! Have you thought about the dads in your life—your father, your children’s father, father-in-law, sibling, friend, significant other? Puzzling over what to get the man who has it all? Don’t bore the guy with the old standards. (Does he really need another tie?) Send him down to Swizz for the relaxation he deserves!
Men who spa know that nothing soothes away the stresses of the day like a skin-detoxifying facial or a certified massage. Does he work with his hands, or spend time on his feet? Then maybe he needs a manicure or a pedicure to pamper and refresh his body and spirit.
And be sure to check out our Father’s Day Sale, with special pricing for Dad on our Rosemary Mint Pedicure or our Certified Massage, and say thanks dad, for all you do!
SWIZZ ♥s Sled
Sled Island is one of the best music festival in Calgary, and we can’t wait for this year’s lineup with guest curator Flying Lotus! Sled has something for everyone, from bass and blues to new-wave and power pop, and everything in between, plus comedy, film and art! And of course, we love Sled’s commitment to environmental responsibility! See you there?
