Calgary Food Fest

September 8You know the culinary offerings are top notch when the politicians show up (MLA Ric McIver and Mayor Naheed Nenshi have RSVP’d yes)—21 food trucks might have something to do with that, including Soul Kitchen BBQ, Atlas Ice Cream and Lil’ Truck on the Prairie. Live bands, prize draws and bouncy castles keep the whole family entertained.11400 27 st. SE, Calgary,teamupcalgary.ca

Great Canadian Beer Festival

September 7 and 8This is a pretty major lineup of some of Western Canada’s best brewers, including several big and small Island breweries: Category 12, Phillips, Hoyne and Merridale Cidery—among many others. Always a fitting end to the summer. Royal Athletic Park, 1014 Caledonia Ave., Victoria, gcbf.com

Beer and a Curry

Faculty Brewing, vancouver  September 9Two U.K. expats bring the popular beer-and-curry Sunday tradition to the West Coast with these new special dinner pop-ups at local craft breweries. Guests get bottomless veg or meat curry (and roti) to go with a pint for $35, and we can’t think of a better way to prepare for Mondays. instagram.com/beerandacurry
