Think of Head West as the heart and soul of the West – vendors, artisans, music, food, beverages, activities, workshops and movies, all set in the historic Fort Calgary site. We invite you to come for a day of celebrating the amazing community that makes up the West.

WHAT TO EXPECT: We’ll be setting up our vendors within the “Markings” of historic Fort Calgary. This outdoor artwork commemorates the outline and memory of the original 1875 NWMP Fort that marked Calgary’s origin. Created from a series of carved wood members punctuated with traces of red light, the installation embodies the impermanence and dynamic energy of the original Fort; a place of confluence and change where not just the Bow and the Elbow rivers merge, but also where many different people came together to envision a new beginning.

PLAN to stroll through the outdoors vendor offerings which will be set up within the Markings. From cow skull art, to grass-fed beef ranches, to whisky cakes, vintage clothing and artifacts,  and much more, this vendor market will be unlike any you’ve ever partaken in.

EAT & DRINK at one of the many food trucks that will be set up on the west side of the Market. As well we will have a selection of West-inspired food selections for purchase in the HEAD WEST LOUNGE, set up in the Upper Barracks of Fort Calgary. Come up for a bit to enjoy a cocktail, beer or glass of wine as well as a bite to eat!

MOCKTAILS will be served at the Bottled Bronc, the cutest little mobile bar this side of Texas. They’ll be coming up with a special non-alcoholic menu of mocktails, as well as serving up some refreshments.

Come and enjoy some of our fave local musicians who will be playing their COUNTRY MUSIC outdoors on the ATCO stage and inside in the Upper Barracks.

Enjoy the two sets of DRUMMING we have scheduled during the afternoon, compliments of the Stardale group of indigenous girls. You’ll be awed by the powerfulness of their performance, in traditional wear, of course.

Hit up a MOVIE in the Burnswest Theatre. Way Out West Fest is proud to host the Canadian premiere of Cowboys: A Documentary Portrait. We have two free showings of this 90 minute film, one at 3:00 p.m., and one at 5:00 p.m. These showings are free, but be sure to reserve your seat. Later in the evening, we’ll be hosting a Western classic – and which it will be – will be voted on by you!

PLEASE NOTE:  A portion of your entry fee to Head West is donated to the Stardale Charity, a group which works to assist indigenous girls empower themselves.
