May 10, Petroleum Club, Calgary
Browse fine art auction items by the likes of monochrome artist Keith Andrews with beverage in hand from Tuscan winery Avignonesi before sitting down to a five-course dinner by chef Andre Zimmerman, all while listening to the stylings of the Calgary Philharmonic—it’s a full night of indulgence in support of their music. Tickets, $300.
May 10 to October 1, Edmonton
Kicking off its sixth season, the popular summer event has become a must-stop venue for Edmontonians looking for a unique shopping experience, fresh produce and groceries, and a great meal from one of its many local food trucks.
May 12, Crystal Garden, Victoria
Upon walking into the clear-domed tasting hall, you will promptly be handed an empty charcuterie board and glass for a sampling session of Pacific Northwest meats and cheeses (with all the accompaniments), plus your choice of local wine, beer and cider. Need we say more? There will also be seminars throughout the day on curing meat, the topic of port, and those lovably pungent cheeses. Tickets start at $35.
