As a kid, June was my all-time favourite month. The weather was getting warm, the days were so long, and the tantalizing possibilities of summer stretched out gloriously before me. Okay, so some things have changed. Now June is a mad, chaotic dash with all the people in my house trying to finish up all the things before summer. Wishing you all good luck this month!


Kick off the month with the Royal Canadian International Circus, with incredible shows until June 5, 2022. With the smell of popcorn, the dazzling lights, and the high-energy music, the whole family will be entranced, and don’t forget to use the code familyfuncalgary’ to get TWO tickets for the price of ONE.

June means lilacs in Calgary – even if only for a very short window. Head down to the 4th Street Lilac Festival on June 5, 2022, for blocks of great vendors plus plenty of fantastic entertainment. Look for the bouncy castle for the kids and Food Truck Lane, among other great attractions.

Come cheer on the Rising Stars in the Calgary Civic Symphony concert on June 5, 2022.

If you’re looking for something a little different, Tea on the Verandah is back on Sundays at Heritage Park, for a lovely refined afternoon.

Spruce Meadows has begun its season of horse jumping and family fun! The Founders, the National, and the Pan-American all take place in June. The National, from June 16 – 19, 2022, has TONS of extra activities, too.

All Sport One Day is actually doing TWO weekends this year, and the first one is June 17 – 19, 2022. It’s an amazing opportunity for your kids to try a sport they have never tried before – for FREE! We’ve done it for years and it’s a great experience. (Read about it here.) But registration opens June 8, 2022, so mark your calendars.

Of course, Father’s Day is this month, and we have lots of great ideas to spend the day with your daddy. Check out all the great ideas that we found in our Father’s Day Guide!
