Taking place on a six-block length of 17th Ave SE, and featuring intimate, convivial venues, unique food and drink, and a range of Calgary performers to suit all musical tastes, East Town Get Down is going to shake up the festival landscape in Calgary, kicking off the summer season with an international flare.
