Airdrie Events and Festivals
Annual Airdrie Events Worth A Look.
Airdrie is buzzing with activities and festivals for everyone.
Why Airdrie Events?
We at Dang Good Carpet and Furnace Cleaning have a particular fondness for Airdrie, Alberta! Some of our most popular, valued, and repeat customers live there and thousands of our cleaning services have been carried out there.
Airdrie is a popular and dynamic city in Alberta, and we are blessed to have received so much business from its residents. In addition, we are humbled to be recognized as one of the go-to Carpet Cleaning, Furnace Cleaning and Windows Cleaning Services in Airdrie despite being based in Calgary.
While not on the physical scale of Calgary, it has a larger-than-life personality and provides an abundance of activities which make it more than comparable to its southern counterparts. As small business owners, we feel that it is important for us to play an active role within the City. Detailed below are some of the Airdrie Events and Festivals that Dang Good is either participating in or has been involved with previously. Most of these events happen annually, and everyone has their favourites. We find it a great way to connect and socialize with business owners, homeowners, tenants and locals alike. Read on to find out more about these wonderful Annual Airdrie Events.
Airdrie Home and Lifestyle Show.
The Annual Airdrie Home and Lifestyle Show is one of the most significant Airdrie Events. It is usually held annually during a weekend towards the end of April at Genesis Place. There are over two hundred booths from communities nearby. The Exhibitor List consists of businesses, charities and other local organizations—each providing products, services or information for your home or lifestyle.
Yet, the show has become more than just a place of distinct vendors displaying goods and solutions over the years. Instead, it is a place for connection and entertainment. It is a place where one can get a real sense of what Airdrie is all about and the community spirit it embraces.
Dang Good has been an Exhibitor for a few years now. In 2022 they were a Bingo Card Sponsor and will be again in 2023. Please see our Airdrie Trade Show Blog for more information. And for just $5.00, it provides a fun day out for everyone and anyone with plenty of prizes to be won too.
Airdrie Children’s Festival.
The Airdrie Children’s Festival began in 2018 to help foster creativity and curiosity in children through fun and educational activities. This exciting Airdrie event returned in May 2022, at Nose Creek Park, having been cancelled for the previous two years because of the pandemic. The dates for 2023 are May 27th and 28th, 10am to 4pm.
Amazingly at the time of writing, this event was still free, allowing it to be available to everyone from all walks of life. Being free, parents and wards do not have to worry about how they might pay for an event that is so valuable to its young people in the community. The festival promotes fun through learning and provides a means to ’embrace cultural differences’.
Children can let their imaginations run wild in the interactive Children’s Village and the Inspiration Stations, while the main stage entertainment never fails to provide hours of delight. In addition, kids can sign up for workshops with various themes across the city throughout June.
Dang Good Carpet and Furnace Cleaning was delighted to be a Delicious Food Sponsor of this Airdrie Event in 2022 and will be again in 2023.
Airdrie Festival of Lights.
Running since 1996, the Airdrie Festival of Lights (AFOLS) was named the Top Community Attraction in Alberta for 2021 by the Alberta Chambers of Commerce. This free walk-through Christmas presentation of nearly $1 million worth of lights and features is the largest outdoor event of its kind in Western Canada. In 2021 it was a COVID-safe way for families to get into the holiday spirit.
Each year, the event is held from 6 pm to 9 pm December 1st to 31st. This is yet another event held at Nose Creek Park.
There is so much to see and do for adults and children alike. In addition to the glow of lights, which bring a special magic to any holiday season, there are designated activities for kids, firepits, skating on the pond and hot chocolate stations. Miniature riding trains offer a different perspective of the visual display of lights. Plus, there will be a calendar of nightly events.
Dang Good Carpet and Furnace Cleaning was a Fire Pit Sponsor in 2021. The firepits help to keep everyone warm during those cold and unpredictable Alberta winter evenings. You are encouraged to bring your own roasting sticks with delights such as hot dogs and marshmallows to feast on those culinary senses. Alternatively, purchase a beverage or two on-site or check out Santa’s Gift Shop.
In 2022, Dang Good Carpet and Furnace Cleaning was the first ever Toy Train Express Sponsor and is hoping to continue that sponsorship in 2023.
Airdrie Puppy Pals Christmas Paw-ty Auction.
Every December, Airdrie Puppy Pals holds a silent online auction for the charities: Community Links and the Airdrie Food Bank. In 2021 this annual fundraiser had been going strong for seven years and raised $13,000 with $6,500 each going to Community Links and Airdrie Food Bank.
Dang Good couldn’t be happier to be part of this activity that positively impacts many people’s lives. We donated a Carpet Cleaning Gift Certificate for last year’s auction and hope to do the same in 2023. Details of the 2023 auction will be posted once it becomes available, so check back here nearer the date to find out more.
Airdrie Annual Chamber Golf Tournament.
In August 2021, the Airdrie Chamber of Commerce celebrated 20 years of the Chamber Classic Golf Tournament. At this, the longest-running golf tournament in the city, both Chamber and non-Chamber members enjoyed a day of golf, food, drinks and fun. This golf event is played in a ‘Texas Scramble" format to allow for every golfer’s skill level and make it an enjoyable occasion for all involved. In addition to the golf itself, there is the driving range, the putting green, beverages, lunch and a presentation dinner available too. Details can be found on the Airdrie Chamber of Commerce Events calendar when it is posted.
In lieu of sponsoring the cancelled Home Show in 2021, Dang Good was the drink sponsor at this event. Check out the Chamber’s Collection of Pictures and Videos of the 20th Annual Golf Tournament.
More Airdrie Events.
Dang Good Carpet and Furnace Cleaning is committed to giving back to the community and being involved in a wide variety of Airdrie Events, Festivals and Activities. We believe that responsible business ownership goes beyond just operating in the city. It includes supporting the causes that uplift and empower the local citizens. We are inspired to get out there and meet the great people and business owners that live, work and play in this wonderful city. We are involved in the events listed above, but we won’t stop there. We hope to get involved in other significant events too
AirdrieFEST is a great way to get to know your local community better. It is an annual one-day street festival held downtown on a Saturday in September. The festival showcases and celebrates local organizations and businesses. Vendors, volunteers, food trucks, musicians and more work together to put on this outstanding event. A Kids Activity Corner includes bracelet making, jump rope, bubbles, mask making, sidewalk chalk, and other fun activities. More information about this event will be posted as it becomes available.
The 2023 AirdrieFEST is on September 9th from 11am to 4pm.
Airdrie Parades are a time-honoured and exciting celebratory tradition.
- Canada Day Parade – Held on July 1st, a parade of judges pass through the city streets assessing the dress-up and decoration of homes, doorsteps, balconies and driveways in celebration of Canada Day. Each display is evaluated, and the most creative community designs go to a vote for prizes.

- The Santa Claus Parade – This parade is held on Main Street, Airdrie, at the beginning of December. Unfortunately, the 2021 event was cancelled due to COVID-19, but it was back in December 2022 and is on schedule for 2023. Check back nearer the time for more information.
- The New Year’s Eve Fireworks – In 2022, this New Year’s Eve celebration was at 6.30 pm at East Lake Park (behind Genesis Place), Airdrie and hosted by the City of Airdrie. Information is not yet available for 2023.
