What’s Happening in January? | Family-Friendly Events in Calgary This Month

January Events (Family Fun Calgary)

Okay, so the less said about January, the better, in my opinion. Nevertheless, here we are. This is a great month to be positive and get out and enjoy family life. With the kids off school the first week, we’ve included some special events to get out of the house, while still staying warm.

TELUS Spark is hosting Unboxed until January 6, 2019, because everyone knows the packaging is the best part! Let your kids unleash their creativity to discover how great cardboard, tape, and bubble wrap can really be as they use their hands and learn new skills to create new masterpieces.
