This week: July 22 to 28  

We’re making history this week in #DowntownYYC – come celebrate with us!

Walk the Pride: The rainbow and trans flag crosswalks are back and here to stay!

Locked Library: What’s more fun than a night at the library? Being a knight at the library! On July 26th, our Locked Library returns for one night of fairy-tale adventure. You and your team will have 2 hours to quest through the realm. Work together, solve puzzles, and race to be among the first to escape the enchanting New Central Library. 

Calgary Folk Music Festival: join them for their 40th Anniversary in Calgary. Check out the line-up here.

Shakespeare by the Bow – A Midsummer Night’s Dream: This summer, come together with the Calgary community to celebrate and support Alberta’s emerging artists in a gorgeous natural setting. One of Shakespeare’s most popular works, A Midsummer Night’s Dream follows four young lovers and a group of six amateur actors through the forest as they are influenced and manipulated by a band of forest-dwelling fairies. Join us in Prince’s Island Park for this thrilling chase of love, identity and confusion.

YYC Jam Registration: In its inaugural year, YYC Jam is a single day, all ages, three-on-three basketball tournament and festival, featuring a FIBA three-on-three exhibition game, live music and beer gardens. Hosted in the heart of Calgary’s downtown on August 10, 2019, the event’s footprint extends four city blocks, including Stephen Avenue and Centre Street.

#IAMDOWNTOWN Summer Stage: Join us this summer for some excellent music! Located on the 100 East block of Stephen Avenue Walk, outside the Telus Convention Centre, all performances are free and outdoors.
