Update September 26, 2013

For those that are coming later to the event, I have sent out some more contact info to you as well. Also if you are coming later, you can look for a larger crowd (in a larger crowd inside the venue as well - lol). We will do our best to try and meet with everyone at this event.

Hope to see ya there!

Cheers,

Mike

 

 

Come on out and enjoy the Alberta Beer Festival.

*FYI - Tickets on the Alberta Festival website (below) will go on sale starting on August 15th (after the Travel Zoo deal).  Regular ticket $19.00 + tax and VIP $25.00 + tax 

Description of the event:

Alberta Beer Festivals will celebrate its 10th anniversary with the debut of Calgary Oktoberfest, showcasing beers from more than 10 German and local craft breweries -- including Big Rock and Wild Rose. Take part in the Munich tradition without leaving Calgary.   Tickets on the website will be going on sale on August 15th.

For $45, 50% off, get two VIP passes plus food and drink tokens for the event on either Friday, Sept. 27 or Saturday, Sept. 28 at BMO Centre at Stampede Park.  We are attending the event on Friday September 27th.

The deal includes:

• Two VIP passes, which come with a German pretzel and a souvenir mug to take home

It works out to be $25.98 per person with the taxes and service fees.

We will be meeting outside of the BMO center at 3:45 pm on September 27th.  For those that would like to meet earlier for a drink, some people will be meeting at the Calgary Stampede Casino in the middle lounge at 2:45 pm.

If you have questions about the event, please check the Alberta Festivals Website.

Pre-purchased Tickets (I have some available)

Aug 6th – Note: I have pre-purchased a total of 5 VIP double passes off the Travel Zoo website (2 passes are already taken – so still room for 6 more people).  If you would like to be included in one of these passes, the cost is $27.00 per person (this includes taxes, service fees and the $1.00 for DSN).  **You will need to contact me (via email not by posting comments) to make arrangements for payment.  DO NOT EMAIL THE DSN WEBSITE (this email goes to David R, not to me).  You must go to my profile and email from there and please make sure that you include your email *Do not hide your email address - otherwise it is difficult to email you back.

*I will not be holding these tickets without payment !   Once all the tickets are taken, I will post that they are sold on the website.

Have a great week everyone.

    I had fun.. perhaps a little too much fun!! Good beer, but the food didn't look appetizing to me.

    I had a great time, but for the cost of the event I will look at booking a community center next year with lots of beer, food, DJ, games... If it goes well, maybe an annual event :)

    When and where are we meeting. I know there are preliminary details in the posting. Is the time and place now confirmed?

    Thanks

    • Seanna

      There are several entrances to the BMO Centre, but I would imagine that it would be the main entrance on the south side. Mike will need to confirm, but the main entrance is near the main ticket booth. That entrance is by Exhibit Hall B on the map that Brian posted (http://venues.calgary...­). There are tables outside, and I would think that would be the best place. I don't think that there will be an entrance open much closer to Hall E.

    I guess they are double passes, so I would just need one double pass, assuming the double pass is for two people.

    Thanks
