PEELED® Calgary Cocktail Festival – Aug. 12th to 14th, 2017

  • August 4, 2017

PEELED® Calgary Cocktail Festival – YYC's First!

YYC cocktail festival august 2017 banner

This is just what our city needs… a brand-new festival dedicated to supporting, promoting and growing Calgary’s not-so-boisterous cocktail scene!

I mean, there are some good places to grab a cocktail in Calgary, but I find that the full extent of how many such places exist isn’t as common of knowledge as it should be!

If you love trying out new cocktails or perhaps enjoy sipping on one of your old favourites (mine just happens to be an old-fashioned), you’ll want to check out one of these events happening during the very first PEELED® Calgary Cocktail Festival.

If not, you can also stop in at any of the festivals business partners listed below and try their feature ‘Peeled’ cocktail. Also see our list of Best August Festivals in Calgary (2017).
