January 2013 preview of events, markets, festivals, expos, speakers and more

Happy New Year! 2013 has arrived right on schedule, and Calgary will enjoy another year filled with fabulous festivals, educational expositions, stimulating speakers, and so much more. January features one of Calgary’s preeminent theatre festivals, the High Performance Rodeo. You’ll also find such interesting things as a talk on the economic impact of locally-produced beer, and two speed skating competitions. There’s no shortage of things to do in this, the first full month of winter. Get out and enjoy your city.

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.
