124 Street is celebrating the winter season by bringing light to the community. The inaugural All is Bright festival will have live bands, light art installations, food trucks, and sleigh rides on Saturday night. Check out the map and agenda before you plan your visit,

Festival of Ideas is hosting a not-to-be-missed evening with Alanis Morissette & Margaret Atwood. They will be together on stage for a conversation about life, love, and art. Friday, 8pm at Winspear Centre. Tickets are available here.

Feel good about this shopping: Just Christmas is a global marketplace where many non-profit and charitable organizations sell quality arts and crafts such as plush wool rugs, leather handbags, silver jewelry, and alpaca sweaters. The money you spend goes towards the building of healthy communities around the world. Head to Alberta Avenue Hall on Friday (5:30-9pm) and Saturday (9:30am-4pm).

Hilarious improv comedy teams compete in Rapid Fire Theatre's Prairie Bowl over the weekend. Tickets to guaranteed laughter and showtimes can be found here.
