Great Outdoors

May. 18 - 19, 2013 TELUS Spark

Free with Admission and Membership!

Remember those great outdoors that you visited before winter set in? Neither do we. This weekend is all about getting active, getting outside, and what's outside when we get there.

Exciting news! In support of the great outdoors, we're encouraging all our visitors to bike to TELUS Spark during this month's Special Event Weekend. Not only will you save on fuel, you could save on admission too!

We're giving the first 10 people that prove they rode their bike to TELUS Spark complimentary admission to TELUS Spark!

Here's a link to the City of Calgary's Bike Routes to plan your path!

Every month TELUS Spark hosts a special weekend jam-packed with family-fun, programs and experiences! Enjoy a new theme every month. Included free with General Admission or Membership.
