It's that wonderful time of winter when Silver Skate Festival takes over Hawrelak Park. For the 24th year, you have your choice of skating, entertainment, live music, art, and sports programming until Feb 23rd. This year is a bit different - some events are hosted at Victoria Park due to renos at Hawrelak Park. Check the schedule of events and get all the info you need here.

Rapid Fire Theatre's WildFire Festival is back! It's the marriage of three improv tournaments that showcases students from all across Alberta. Show these fresh faces some love and attend one of the many shows between now and March 1st.
