Southwood's favorite festival is returning! Join us from 11 am to 5 pm on Saturday, June 3 for:

  • Live music
  • A cash BBQ and marketplace
  • Village Brewery beer garden
  • Face painting and a petting zoo
  • Kid bouncers, crafts and activities

We will be collecting donations for the Calgary Food Bank at Rhubarb Fest again. Last year, thanks to your generosity, we collected 320 lbs in food donations.

Live Music

We are in the process of booking the bands for Rhubarb Fest. Stay tuned to find out who will be playing.

We need Volunteers

We are not able to put on these events without a strong group of volunteers to assist with tasks such as beer garden supervision, craft zone leader, food preparation, festival set up and festival tear down.

Last year we had 52 volunteers help in various ways at the festival. If you are able to commit a couple hours of your time, please contact Rob Dickinson at programs@southwoodconnects.ca.

Sponsors and Partners

A big thanks to our sponsors and partners - we couldn't do it without them. If you're interested in sponsorship, contact Rob Dickinson at programs@southwoodconnects.ca.

Membership Benefits

Stop by the Southwood membership table to find out what special perks your community membership gets you at this year’s festival. If you don’t have a community membership yet, you can purchase it in advance or at the festival.
