Start with tomatoes, add garlic and hot peppers, and garnish with cilantro! Set fire to those taste buds during Kensington’s 19th annual SUN AND SALSA FESTIVAL.
Kensington, Calgary’s ‘Village in the City’, invites you to participate in the Salsa Tasting Contest. Kensington businesses will serve up over 500 gallons of 40 different salsas. You get to be the judge. Purchase a bag of chips from our Charities for $3 or 2 for $5, and taste test your way through all the spicy salsa recipes served up by teams of Kensington businesses. Our Charities will also be selling water for $2.
This annual family event takes place along Kensington Road and 10th Street NW. Three live entertainment stages will spread artistic flavour through the neighbourhood if you want to listen to music and dance. Bring your kids! Check our great Kensington retailers, restaurants and pubs. They will be open for your shopping and eating pleasure. Along with the streets being filled with vendors & artisans selling a variety of products & services for the day.
Both Kensington Road and 10th Street will be closed for the day. There’s an LRT stop (Sunny Side Station) right at the Kensington Safeway, so public transit is a great way to beat the crowds. We’re right off the bike paths so why not ride, blade, run or walk on over to our festival!
