Farmer’s Picnic The Farmers Picnic is very similar to a Farmers Market but with ready-to-eat produce and product. People will be given the opportunity to purchase a picnic basket (or bring their own) and then participate in deli-style purchasing that will allow them to pick and choose from a wide array of fruits, vegetables, drinks, baked goods, meats, dairy products, salads, and desserts. After packing the perfect picnic, grab the perfect picnic spot at one of many sites in downtown Calgary featuring Canada Day programming.
Street Eats Experience the food truck phenomenon; choose from a range of inexpensive and ethnically diverse food from some of the city’s favourite small restaurants and eateries. Also reopening in the Pergola at Olympic Plaza is Carne, by Teatro, featuring soft drinks, a variety of fresh rotisserie meat sandwiches, chilli and baked goods.
Local Dining Patio Experience an old world square feeling in the middle of all the energy and excitement. Enjoy a fine-dining experience with some of the city’s finest local restaurants serving you under the open sky.
Grow, Plant Harvest The north western part of Olympic Plaza will be transformed into an urban farm. Pick apples from an orchard, harvest and take home your own carrots, beets and potatoes, or plant a pea. People will be able to take part in a scratch and sniff herb garden, look at the different stages of lettuce growth in our timeline garden and meander through berry bushes. Come down and talk to local farmer April Mae and get your hands dirty. Market Collective Market Collective is a community space, created to showcase the works of local artists, artisans and musicians. The space exists to promote the local arts and culture of the city of Calgary and to engage and empower the community towards the positive growth of our city.
Market Collective Strives towards creating space where Calgarians can support local purchasing and be exposed to the talent and artistic drive that Calgary holds. See Mayor Nenshi’s gumball portrait, try on the biggest sunglasses in Calgary (figuratively speaking), let the kids take part in an interactive mural project, or sit back and listen to the many musical melodies taking to the stage. Check out the great food vendors that will be on site for CALGARY EATS!
