Anyone looking for a laugh, a learning opportunity, or some good eats in Medicine Hat should look no further! There are several events happening in town that are not to be missed:


Snowed In Comedy Tour

On Tuesday, Feb. 25, 2020, if you find yourself snowed in, have a laugh about it! The Snowed In Comedy Tour brings together four hilarious international comedians to the Esplanade Arts and Heritage Centre on Tuesday night. It will be the twelfth year of the tour - a tour well known not because of a big televised special but from the sheer power of word of mouth. Check out Canadian comedy’s best-kept secret and buy tickets for the show here.


Experience Essentials Workshop

This event is something a little different. It is not for tourists, but about tourists. It is a workshop about how to create immersive, local and authentic visitor experiences. Register for Travel Alberta’s new Experience Essentials workshop to learn about some new ideas you can try to grow your business and respond to what travellers are looking for! It is a full-day session (From 9:15 a.m. until 4:30 p.m.) held at Medalta in the Historic Clay District on Wednesday, Feb. 26, 2020. Registration is required and you can do that here
