Things to do in Calgary this Weekend with Kids | March 6-8

Friday

Family Fest Night

Join us for an evening of fun for the whole family (Kids gr.6 and under with an adult) with carnival games, bouncy houses and more! This is a great opportunity to invite friends and family.

Never-ending Story at Storybook Theatre

Hiding in a closet to avoid school bullies, ten-year-old Bastian becomes immersed in a strangely compelling book: the tale of a hero’s quest to save the realm of Fantastica from the encroaching terror of the Nothing. But is Bastian just a reader of this extraordinary story – or a vital part of it? Filled with spectacle and wondrous other-worldly creatures, this beautiful tale of the trials of childhood and the triumph of creativity will delight and inspire the whole family.

Bow Habitat What’s Up?

Take flight with Alberta’s avian species and discover What’s Up With Feathered Friends. “Flap” your way through hands-on activities and “squawk” with experts from Alberta Institute for Wildlife Conservation, CPAWS Southern Alberta, and Calgary Wildlife Rehabilitation Society (CWRS) between 10am and 3pm. Activities are included with Discovery Centre Admission.

WP Puppet Studio

Puppet Pop-Ups happen monthly (and sometimes more) at different locations throughout Calgary and with a different theme each time. We make puppets and do some dramatic sharing.  The workshop actively promotes all family members—youngsters and elders alike—in creating art and drama together. Please note that children and teens must participate with an adult.
