If you have other plans next week, consider this your advance warning to cancel them. Grey Cup Festival is about to land in YYC, and we’ve been working closely with their talented and tireless team for months to create a five-day celebration that will set a new high-water mark for the CFL’s biggest week of the year. Here’s a quick run-through of some of the highlights that we’re excited about, plus links to every single event happening next week! 

Got kids? There’s a zone for that.
We got you, parents. Check out the free – and *indoor* – Family Zone. Not to spill secrets, but we may have custom-designed a western-themed mini golf, and we also may have tested it out to make sure it’s as fun as it looks (it is). There’s a whole range of other anti-boredom stuff involved in this space, like obstacle courses, games, a toddler area, and a lot more. Get some details here

Walk into 360 degrees of video.
If you’re the kind of person who likes IMAX… or you just like really cool immersive experiences… the ATCO Stratosphere’s a don’t miss. Go inside this 18-meter inflatable dome and be surrounded by 360 degrees of video projections. The ATCO Stratosphere is free, but there are some times booked for private events so you’ll want to plan accordingly. Check out the details here

The best part of any festival: live music.
The TD Outdoor Stage is featuring a range of Alberta talent all day long from Wednesday through Saturday. See the line-up day-by-day here

Find your tribe at team parties.
