hello, Calgary!

Filed Under Events | April 17, 2013


We’re excited to announce that starting this week, you can get your favourite family-friendly weekend event listings for Calgary, as well as for Toronto and Vancouver!

We’d love your help in spreading the word to your parent pals in Calgary, so they can be in the know on the fun happening in their city. It’s super easy: just use this link via Twitter or Facebook to let your friends know the events are simply a click away.

What To Do: Your Guide to Events in Your City

Here’s how our “what to do, what to do?” listings work: every Thursday we round up and publish all the special events going on in your area. Focused on one-off events for ages 10 and under, we discover what’s happening in town and slightly farther afield, and let you know what to expect. And to make your life easier, you can choose how you get your listings:

  • via our website – try our new and improved, mobile-friendly calendar view for Vancouver, Toronto or (starting tomorrow!) Calgary.
  • in an email sent directly to your inbox each Thursday morning, highlighting some of our favourite events. It also reminds you to take a peek at the site or the app for more details! Our first Calgary email will go out tomorrow so be sure to sign up for it now!
  • on your iPhone via our friendly (and free!) app OnTheGoKids.

Travel-friendly and easy to use, OnTheGoKids lets you find, save and bookmark kid-friendly events and locations close to you, as well as share them with friends via Twitter, Facebook, text, and email. Users say our app is intuitive, easy to use, and a big time saver for weekend planning. Plus, every “what to do?” guide you read is gathered and put together by a local parent, so you can be sure the events have passed the parent filter!

We’ve jumped the gun a bit and listed Calgary’s events on the app today to give you a taste of what’s to come.

If you have an event you think we need to know about for any of our cities, please send it along via this handy form anytime.

We’re excited Calgary is joining the yoyo fold, and we’re pretty excited about the weekends to come!
