Gearing up for the holidays? Take a quick trip to Calgary for a break, or get your shopping done early!
 

CALGARY UNDERGROUND FILM FESTIVAL

A newer tradition here in Calgary, the Underground Film Festival, better known as CUFF, is a four day festival of documentary film. Canada actually has a world reputation as a producer of incisive, thoughtful and well-researched documentaries – you can see the best of the best this November 28 to December 2. This year’s line-up looks spectacular! We’re excited to see Rodents of Unusual Size, a look at a small Louisiana town and the lives both great and small that it contains, and Matanga / Maya / M.I.A., a biography of the incredible musical artist known as M.I.A. and her journey from refugee to superstar! And that’s just the tip of the iceberg!
 

CALGARY EXPO CHRISTMAS MARKET

Get all your holiday shopping for the nerd in your life finished early! The same people that bring you Calgary Fan Expo host a Christmas themed convention that makes the festive season AWESOME. Featuring hundreds of artists and vendors who are here to make sure you can deck the halls with all the awesome geek and nerd stuff you can imagine! Buy comics, collectables, movies or original art for that special someone on your shopping list this Dec. 1 and 2nd at the BMO Centre!
 

INTERNATIONAL CHRISTMAS MARKET

If your taste in gift-giving is a little more traditional, then check out the Spruce Meadows International Christmas Market. Taking place over two weeks from November 16 to December 2 at Spruce Meadows, this is where you can find 300+ vendors selling one-of-a-kind hand-made items that will delight even the toughest customer on your shopping list! Honestly, even if you don’t buy anything, the Christmas Market is well worth attending for a shot of holiday spirit and a cup of hot cocoa! Don’t miss it.

There’s no better complement to a day of rosy cheeks and hot chocolate in mitted hands than a stay at the Best Western Premier Freeport Inn & Suites. Our comfortable rooms are warm and inviting, a great place to rest after a full day of shopping for the people you really love. Book your room today and enjoy a fantastic trip to Calgary
