What: Grab the bull by the horns at the 10-day centennial celebration of Canadiana western-style at the
Calgary Stampede.
When: Now until July 15.
Where: Stampede Park, Calgary.
Buzzworthy notes: While
the fashionable festivities are a little less Royal this year—given that the regal newlyweds
Will and Kate attended last year’s roundup—there’s no shortage of bull-riding (IRL or the new Midway rollercoaster, ‘Outlaw’) and deep-fried goodness (from veggies to bacon sundae funnel cakes) this time around.
Status: En pointe
What: A behind-the-curtains look at the National Ballet of Canada with the exclusive Design Exchange-hosted exhibit,
60 Years of Designing the Ballet.
When: From July 11 to September 2.
Where: The Design Exchange, 34 Bay Street, Toronto.
Buzzworthy notes: A tale of the storied, 60-year-old national dance institution told in classic tutus, costume sketches and set designs from iconic productions like
Swan Lake and
The Nutcracker.
