Thanks for Celebrating Canada Day!

THANK YOU TO EVERYONE that came out for CalgarySoca's LAST FETE OF THE SUMMER. we celebrated Canada Day FOR FREE and the ONLY way to get a ticket was to R.S.V.P:

Let's face it we've spent WAY TOO much money on fetes already this year!  'BlackOut', 'Colours', Carifest, 'Cheers', Rupee, Lil' Rick and we still have to go to Edmonton again for Cariwest and maybe make it to Machel in Vancouver!  We barely had enough to tide us through Canada's Big day.

As a thank you to all who have been celebrating with us over the last few months, CalgarySoca threw our first appreciation party just in time for Canada Day for a chance to party while not hurting the pocket book.  

All you had to do was R.S.V.P and your ticket was FREE!

Soho allowed us to open the uppermost floor of the club and have the kitchen serve Caribbean Food all night!  Thank you to FOOD TREK catering,  the capacity crowd who attended including the executive and volunteers from the Caribbean Community Council of Calgary, Sykotik Mas and The Trinidad and Tobago Association.  

 The CalgarySoca team will be traveling to Edmonton, Vancouver, Toronto and Jamaica for the rest of the summer so this was our last official party in Calgary until the fall.

Rupee in Calgary for Carifest (video)

Bajan Soca sensation, Rupee came to Calgary on June 9th as a part of Calgary's 31st Carifest Celebrations.  Rupee, best known for chart-topping hits including "Ice Cream", "Jump", "What Happens In De Party", and the internationally released, "Tempted to Touch",  brought his brand of Soca to both Shaw Millennium Park during the day, and as the headliner for the official afterparty later that evening at the Republik Nightclub (219 17ave SW, Calgary.).

Joining the festivities were, the man voted Canada's #1 Soca DJ for 2010 and 2011, DJ Soca Sweetness, Florida's Barrie Hype who rocked on stage with and helped Rupee deliver the heat, and CalgarySoca's own Drew Atlas. Below are a couple highlights of Rupee's time in Calgary thanks to some very appreciative fans.

June in Calgary for many of us means its time for the annual Caribbean Festival.  Carifest goes from June 2nd -  June 9th and features events from the Gospel show, to movie night, to the Parade, Day at the Park and of course fetes.  We've been talking for weeks about the official after party with Rupee, but here Sabrina Naz gives you a rundown of the other events that you should be checking out this week.
