JAWS and Folk Fest survive 2013 Calgary flood

Post by anifan »

Despite the flood of late June, JAWS was able to hold its monthly meeting on June 30, even though the downtown, and its meeting place, were closed until shortly before. The Eau Claire Market's underground parkade was wasn't flooded, although the condo complex's between it and the river was.

On July 28, the Calgary Folk Festival held most of its events on nearby Prince's Island, but due to the flood, had to have some outside Eau Claire Market near the river, and its vendors inside the mall where JAWS now uses the Community Meeting Room.
