Bach, quilts, dancing and more: Calgary entertainment options for the weekend – Calgary

It looks like we’re heading into another beautiful weekend here in Calgary.

If you’re not planning on spending all your time in your garden or in the mountains, you’ll need a few ideas to get you out of the house. The Homestretch’s Tracy Fuller has a few suggestions.


Wax Romeo, a Calgary DJ you might recognize from his residency at the HiFi Club, will be spinning funk and disco at the National Music Centre. Studio Bell is hosting its final After Hours party of the season before they go on their summer hiatus.

After Hours has been a huge hit for the NMC. DJs take over the museum turning all five floors of music history into a full-on licensed dance party from 6-10 p.m.

If you haven’t experienced the centre, this is a great way to do it. They are also bringing back the live band karaoke hosted by Jett Thunders featuring backing band The Guess What.

You’ll need tickets before Friday, which you can find right here.

Family friendly

If you’re looking to include the whole family in your dancing endeavors the Bragg Creek Centre is hosting its Family Square Dance Friday night at 7 p.m.

They’re bringing in a professional caller and they’ve recruited a live band called It’s Hip To Be Square. You don’t need any experience or special clothing although those amazing swinging, gingham skirts are just fantastic.

This is a family event but they’re asking everyone be above eight years of age, but the organizers say they can accommodate any age grouping.

You can find all the ticket information right here.
