Calgary is a city of ingenious people. Left to make our way at the foot of the towering rockies, our city has flourished. And alongside, weʼve grown a vibrant DIY arts and music scene. The depth and breadth of our homegrown culture proves thereʼs nothing that canʼt be done here. Our mission is to share it with all.
Curated by the community itself to include a wealth of entertainment, big is a day of fun and surprises. An opportunity for innovators to share a stage and imagine new ways of exploring and forming Calgary culture.
A day long party that celebrates the best and brightest of our local creative class, during the sparkle of the season that most defines who we are. Art, music, film and entertainment collide at the city’s favourite pub, in the city’s favourite entertainment district, in the season that matters most. The winter classic will mark the first time the ship has put bands on an outdoor stage, to share with all calgarians.
