Circle: The Traveling Food Beer and Music Carnival | All Ages Day
On Saturday, it’s the usual All Ages Carnival Fun all day long. Everyone is welcome, even fido! What’s in store, you ask? Plenty! Two curated stages of music and dance from top local DJ’s, international touring acts and festival favourites presented by BassBus. We select a perfect middle ground on all fronts for Circle’s musical backdrop: styles progress from upbeat funk and catchy folk during the daytime, to an all out fire-infused, brightly coloured party when the sun goes down. Expect soulful melodies, big funky basslines, and dancefloors full of smiling faces.

Free Your Play at Shouldice Park
Earth Day Canada’s 2019 public awareness campaign is focused on getting children outside, engaged in self-directed, unstructured play. Outdoor play unequivocally promotes health – think happiness, resiliency, and social connectivity! Earth Day Canada presents this event – in partnership with Kamik and in support of their #FreeYourPlay movement – to showcase the benefits of outside free play and demonstrate its importance in creating the next generation of environmental stewards. Come see what a true Adventure Playground looks like!
The Big Calgary Playdate
Sprog & Sprocket are honoured to ask you to come join us on Sunday, September 15th at Crescent Heights Community Association with your family & friends for a play date like no other & help us raise money for The Children’s Cottage Society and The Happy Birthday Project!
Check out the Kids Plane Pull
It doesn’t sound easy, but with the strength of those around you, it’s possible. Plane Pull is more than just fun on the tarmac, it brings people together to feel the power of community! Join us as over 50 teams compete to pull a 200,000 pound Airbus A300 50 feet across the tarmac – in the fastest time. Kids Pull is also returning this year so be sure to register the little ones to pull their very own plane across the tarmac!
