Our Events

The Airdrie Food Bank hosts two signature events a year - the Shamrock Shimmy in March and Empty Bowls Arts Festival in September. In addition, kind hearted individuals, families, businesses and organizations run various food drives and fundraisers supporting us. If you are planning an event, please visit our third party events page for valuable information.

Empty Bowls Arts Festival 2018

The Empty Bowls Arts Festival is coming up on Saturday, September 22, 2018. The family event features local musicians, artists, children’s activities, silent auction, pottery demonstrations, free soup lunch and handmade pottery bowls for purchase. All proceeds raised during the event directly support the Airdrie Food Bank, providing emergency food support to individuals and families in our community.
