WestJet salutes Canada's top festivals of 2012
This summer WestJet asked festival-goers from across the country to “join the debate” and vote for their favourite Canadian festivals.
Guests voted in person and online to help us determine the top festivals in Canada. Every vote was entered into a draw to win one of five amazing festival experiences. Voters also had the opportunity to win discounted flights or 100% off a future flight!
With more than 500 festivals nominated and 200,000 votes cast, we are ready to announce the winner! For the second year in a row, the Calgary Stampede is named Best Festival in Canada!
