Time Island Festival.
Every Sunday, Saturday, Sep 25, 2021 - Sep 26, 2021 at 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
Time Island Festival is returning September 25 to 26! After a year apart, now is the time to reconnect with history, culture, family fun, and each other. Time Island is a live-action, interactive costume festival that celebrates history, literature, theatre, fantasy, and pop culture. It is held on the beautiful, forested grounds of the Millarville Racetrack, just 20 minutes outside of Calgary and the World-Class Spruce Meadows Equestrian venue. The somewhat remote location of the event removes visitors from the lights of the big city to feel like they are transported to another world – and into the story and fantasy of Time Island.
An immersive interactive experience is what makes Time Island different from other festivals - it’s the first-of-its-kind to mix all genres of comic book pop culture, historical re-enactors, cosplayers, actors, and fantasy lovers.
Visitors of all ages become part of the elaborate and beautiful story of hope for the future, one that is full of drama, villains, heroes, time-travel, lost cultures, and cheating death. It’s a new level of themed entertainment that the creators of Time Island have delivered.
