A souped up Inglewood Sunfest hits Calgary's original Main St. this Saturday, Aug. 1!

Featuring a giant outdoor beer garden, vintage car show and shine, awesome kids area, live performances and sidewalk patios, food trucks and shopping galore!

Stretching four lively blocks along 9 Ave. S.E., historic Inglewood’s one-of-a-kind shops, boutiques and eateries will spill into the streets with fantastic sales and promotions, while roving street performers, stilt walkers, dancers, an action-packed Kids Area and a dozen of Calgary’s favourite food trucks will add to the fun-filled day that more than 30,000 people take part in year after year. 

Rounding out the activity will be the return of the highly competitive pie-eating contests running throughout the day on the Inglewood Community Association stage, the vintage car show and shine, and more than 200 vendors lining 9 Ave. with everything from antiques and artisan wares to community info and more.

Finally, this year’s event brings a welcome new addition in the form of a great big Village Brewery beer garden, located in the CPA parking lot on the corner of 9 Ave. and 12 St. S.E. and open from 11 a.m. until 7 p.m. with a live stage and spectacular all-day musical line-up!

Proudly sponsored by the Inglewood BRZ and SoBow Condos, Sunfest 2015 promises to be an action-packed Saturday in the ‘hood you won’t soon forget! www.InglewoodSunfest.ca

The General Gist

The 2015 Night Markets are bigger than ever, thanks to Cult Creative who have donated their parking lot for market nights.  

You'll find over 60 vendors (farm produce and one-of-a-kind handmade items), four food trucks (Rolls Rice, Brazen, Happy Fish and Take It and Go), and of course, live music from open to close.  

Be sure to enter the photo contest, too! Just tweet a photo live from the Night Market using the hashtag #nightmarketyyc. They'll be judged at the end of each evening - and retweet them of course - and someone will win a great prize package.

Don't miss the neighbouring businesses who are part of the market: Crown Surplus (always some fun surprises in their yard), Bite, Esker Gallery and Cafe Gravity (where you'll find live music indoors).

Big thanks to all of the Inglewood neighbours who go out of their way to make room for the market, including the owners and tenants in the Atlantic Avenue Arts Building, Trail Appliances Inglewood Gallery, and the owners and tenants of the National Hotel, notably The Nash.
