You don’t have to go all over the world, you can actually have food from every part of the world here.”

Every year, the Taste of Calgary gives visitors the chance to sample the city’s food, beverages, music, and other cool local offerings. Sit back, relax, and enjoy this special Taste of Calgary edition of My City Speaks To Me.
