Cultural Plan for Calgary

Culture makes Calgary a great place to live and visit. It strengthens the economy, builds social ties and improves quality of life. Calgary’s culture is diverse and dynamic, a space where Indigenous tradition meets modern multiculturalism. With year-round opportunities to create and enjoy culture, there’s something for everyone to discover.
