Downtown Calgary Events Week of November 18th

by Downtown Calgary · 0 comments


From Thursday, November 20th to Sunday, November 23rd you can take in a Downtown Calgary holiday tradition: The Art Market art & craft sale happening at the Telus Convention Centre.

This annual event features more than 200 artisans representing a wide range of arts and craft styles. From great wearables to magnificent sculpture and paintings, you’ll find something for yourself, or that special someone on your holiday shopping list.

With so much to see, you might not be able to take it all in in one day. With your $10 admission, you are able to return to the market as many times as you like! Perfect for bringing a friend, or when you just can’t get something out of your head!

Why not park downtown on the weekend? Parking rates at the Telus Convention Centre are just $5 for the entire day, and street parking is free on Sundays and after 6pm. While you’re downtown, why not check-out Stephen Avenue and many of the other great shops and restaurants in the area?

For more information on parking in the area, see our parking page, or jump directly to our Parking Tool to help you find a lot, parkade or street spot near your destination.
