Calgarians have a need for speed, like seeing chuckwagon teams pound madly towards the finish line or four guys in a bobsled zooming down a frozen track at 120 km/h (75 mph). The legacy of the 1988 Winter Olympics burns brightly, with top notch facilities where Olympic hopefuls train for gold. Immerse yourself in Calgary’s Wild West spirit at the Calgary Stampede, The Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth.
As a recently designated Cultural Capital of Canada, Calgary has come of age with a spectrum of arts and performing arts – theatre, music and dance. Suggest heading over to one of our many parks to take in a special event, such as global fireworks competition.
In the downtown core, dare your clients to step onto the glass floor observation deck at the top of the Calgary Tower for panoramic views of the city. Then it's time to stroll downtown's Stephen Avenue and shop cutting-edge local designers and top international labels, followed by a meal at some of Calgary's finest restaurants, pubs and cafes.
