What to look for at AirdrieFEST this weekend

A great opportunity for Airdrie residents to see everything that Airdrie has to offer is happening this weekend at AirdrieFEST. This event allows community groups and non-profits to showcase their services and products, as well as offering free family-friendly entertainment and fun.

September is the perfect time to check out what programs and events are coming up for community groups, so AirdrieFEST is a great event to get a little taste of everything in one place. AirdrieFEST is happening this Saturday, with over 40 community groups in attendance, and even more local business vendors. The details:
