The autumn season is upon us again in Calgary and that means only one thing…the snow is going to start soon. Yup, it’s going to get cold out and the daylight starts to shrink, but don’t despair! Because although the fall brings with it cold weather, it means the wine festivals are beginning again! And there’s nothing better to kick off this season then with the Rocky Mountain Food & Wine Festival happening next weekend October 14 &15 at the BMO Centre in Stampede Park.
What could beat that? Well I have a set of tickets for Friday October 14th to give away as well (they're entrance tickets only, you'll have to purchase the sampling tickets)! So message me through twitter or respond to this post and I’ll do a random draw Thursday October 13th for the winner.
For all of you that are interested, here’s a bit more information. Plus there are still additional tickets available for purchase, but they might sell out soon so don’t wait too long!
