Pet owners gather at Spruce Meadows to peruse designer pet clothes, nutritional chow, and toys from dozens of exhibitors. Many pet rescues and charities, including the official charity partner, the Calgary Humane Society, stand at the ready to educate visitors. The show entertains audiences with appearances by Buttercup, the skateboarding bulldog, and helps out man and beast with Ask-A-Trainer and Ask-A-Vet features. Kid-friendly activities include a petting zoo, reptile display, face painting, and pony rides. The expo runs Saturday, April 27, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Sunday, April 28, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Children 12 and younger get in free.
Calgary Woman's Show
The Calgary Woman's Show brings together businesses, entertainers, educators, and robot overlords to appeal to female sensibilities. On the entertainment stage attendees might catch a pole-dancing for fitness exhibition, a rock-and-roll concert, or a martial-arts demo. The seminar theater might feature anything from a medical Q&A to a discussion on the Divine Feminine. And on the market floor, merchants including bakeries, cosmetics companies, and fashionable tastemakers sling their wares.
