Win the Golden Meal Ticket

Calgary Herald, July 18

While we can honestly say that everyone who attends the Calgary Folk Music Festival gets a first-class experience, there are some things money can't buy. Like front-row seats on the Golden Tarp, which is won through a raffle-ticket draw. Or the freedom to cut the Porta Potty lines, which nobody gets.

Fear not, chowhounds. Swerve and the Calgary Folk Music Festival are once again offering two lucky festival-goers the opportunity to eat on our dime. That's right: all the butter chicken, Chilean hot dogs, roti and gelato you can handle. For four days, you'll fill your recyclable plates to the max. Non-alcoholic drinks are included. We'll also throw in two four-day festival passes. (Since seniors get in for free, if a "mature" folkie wins, he or she can give the passes to two under-65-year-old friends.)

To enter, just e-mail us the name of the act that makes you salivate (see Pages 8-9 for the complete schedule). Put Golden Meal Ticket in the subject line and include your name and a daytime phone number. Contest closes at noon on Monday, July 21. Winner will be drawn randomly and contacted by phone. Email
