The Taste of Calgary festival is taking place next month for four days.

The festival will feature a variety of international foods from over 40 local restaurants and beverage companies. The public can purchase sampling tickets for $1 each or $19 for 20. There will also be a Cheers Garden and several local food trucks on hand to provide even more taste choices.

In addition to food and drink, there will be two stages providing entertainment. Some of the artists that will be appearing on the music stage this year will be Aktivate, Meta Mofo, The Rondel Roberts Band, and the New Soul Duo. The other stage is the Foodie stage and it will feature performances by Nahlani Dance, belly dancers and several others.

A variety of vendors will be selling items such as homemade arts and crafts, handmade imported goods, pre-packaged food and vintage goods. Several local small businesses will also be there to offer their merchandise.

Organizers of events like this often invest in banner printing services from Calgary print shops to highlight specific areas or recognize sponsors.
