Not much of a shocker, but at Along River Ridge Bed & Breakfast, we sincerely believe that Calgary is one of the most beautiful places on all the earth, the perfect combination of country and the city. The whole region is connected with nature and you’re hard-pressed to find another area that can offer that, but with also an innovative urban aesthetic that is hip and progressive. It is certainly a balancing act and that’s why we’re so proud to help maintain that balance, by providing a touch of country in the city.

Despite being near the heart of Calgary’s inner city, we are still a romantic hideaway that’s private and quiet. It helps that the Bow River is so close by! This makes us perfect for that vacationer who wants to be acquainted with both Calgary’s country and city sides, and now that spring is in full swing, with summer quickly coming around that corner, we want to use this blog to discuss some of Calgary’s more famous festivals, the ones that attract vacationers from all corners of the globe.

One such festival is Chasing Summer, which will take place in the summer on August 7 and 8th. Chasing Summer is Western Canada’s largest electronic music festival and this year’s lineup solidifies that status. Featuring some of the world’s biggest DJs, including Tiesto, Kaskade, Dash Berlin, Afrojack, and more, this year’s Chasing Summer is sure to be explosive, drawing thousands of people to Calgary. Tickets are available now and we recommend that you scoop them up before it’s too late, and if you do have tickets, consider swinging by Along River Ridge Bed & Breakfast, sure to be a great complement to your festival going experience.
