Even though The Trews were in the Gas City in May of this year they are set to rock the Hat once again on September 19 as part of a free concert for the Medicine Hat College Homecoming. Gates open to the public at 6 but the show doesn’t start until 7. The organizers wish to remind potential concert goers that although there is plenty of space for the show admittance will occur on a first come, first served basis, so get there early!

I had the pleasure of seeing The Trews in concert when they visited as the opening act for Nickelback a few years ago. I hadn’t ever heard of them before going to that concert, and looking back I wish I would have paid more attention, because since then I have become quite a fan of their music. These Canadian rockers sport a sound that is distinct in that they have jazzy feel to a lot of their music, utilizing such instruments as the bagpipes, mandolin, brass, piano and many more.

I personally enjoyed their first album more than their most recent one, however now that I have been given the opportunity to see them I will definitely be making myself a fixture at their show in two weeks. There will be a beer garden on site for those of age to enjoy and limited parking so please try to carpool or use public transit if possible.  Bring a blanket, leave your pet at home, and get ready to enjoy a phenomenal free concert in the south soccer field at the Medicine Hat College Saturday, September 19.

I never realized this, but there is a huge community for buying and selling (garage sales) in Medicine Hat. Most of this community exists spread throughout several Facebook groups. Overall, it’s probably not the best system or way to do it; however, considering it’s Facebook, you’re going to get a lot of users, visitors and searches for items you are buying and selling – and most importantly, for FREE. In this post I will give a breakdown of all the Medicine Hat Buy & Sell groups available on Facebook.

I’m going to try and post all of them even if they don’t have much business going on because if anybody is trying to sell something (especially fast), it would be easier to post on every one of these groups to get maximum coverage (granted the item is compliant with the group’s rules). Sorry about the length on this one, there’s so many (redundant) groups!


One of the largest, if not the largest Medicine Hat based groups out there. There is over 6000 members, thousands of items, hundreds of posts. There’s a lot of business going on here. Who needs real garage sales anymore? GARAGE SALE MEDICINE HAT

ANYTHING for sale in Medicine Hat

This group is another big one with close to 1000 photos listed. Plenty of users and discussions going on. As the title suggests, anything is allowed on here. ANYTHING for sale in Medicine Hat

Medicine Hat Moms Swap/Buy

This group is for children and baby items only. It is by far one of the largest groups of this type with almost 2000 members and over 800 items listed. Medicine Hat Moms Swap/Buy
