November 2012 preview of Calgary events, festivals, markets and more

November is a pretty hectic month. What with the starting to get ready for Christmas (yes, I said it, it is just over seven weeks away, after all), Remembrance Day, markets, festivals, and all kinds of other craziness, there’s plenty going on. You’ll find some pretty interesting entries here, like all of the incredible things going on at Calgary Public Library for One Book One Calgary (pdf), expositions like Taboo and the National Franchise Show, and hip events like Awesome Foundation Calgary and Pecha Kucha. Calgary is one happening joint, let me tell you.

Because I’m just one man trying to keep track of cool and unusual things going on in Calgary, and I’m not really quite able to capture all of the possible interests, activities, etc., please also see these fine sites for what’s going on in our city.

Yelp
Fast Forward Weekly
Avenue Magazine
FamilyFunCalgary.com
Calgary Community Events and PSAs
Calgary Stampede Event Calendar
University of Calgary Event Calendar
Calgary Public Library Programs and Classes
Clubzone Calgary
ThisCity

As always, there can be no doubt that I’ve missed a lot of things, and probably most things. Please feel free to add other events in the comments below.
