This all-day event showcases over 500 vendors, food trucks, and live entertainment. It's a must-visit for anyone in the city, whether you're a local or a tourist. With free admission and activities for all ages, the Lilac Festival is the perfect way to spend a sunny day in Calgary.

Joining the Fun at the Urban Calm Coffee Booth

Thank you to everyone that stopped by the Urban Calm Coffee booth on Sunday! The day started at 6am for us getting organized and setting up shop, and ended at around 8:30pm after take down and clean up. We met so many wonderful people who stopped by to check out Urban Calm Coffee, and chatted with lots of customers and friends who came by to stock up their favourite coffee and tea goodies!

The entire day vibrated with huge crowds and so much energy in the air. The people, vendors, music, dancers, food and overall experience was great and we cannot wait to do it all again next year!
