Pop-Up Picnics

Pop-Up Picnics are done for 2016, stay tuned for dates and locations of the 2017 picnics! Thanks again to all of our great vendors, entertainers and every who came out and enjoyed the picnics with us!

What are Pop-Up Picnics you ask? A Pop-Up Picnic is a lunch hour (Noon to 1pm) event hosted by Downtown Calgary in various locations around the downtown core. We’ll bring the tables, chairs, entertainment and you bring your lunch and some friends! Each picnic will have a unique theme and be at a different location each week. These events are completely free, family-friendly and open to the public!
