Looking for something to do in Calgary?

We have lots of great suggestions for visits, activities and places to go for a fun time, day or night, so you can get to know East Village district!

East Village : the hippest 'hood in town

Welcome to East Village, a once-passed-over historical site that today thousands of Calgarians of all ages, backgrounds and cultures call home. Here, everyone is welcome. It’s a neighbourhood where life revolves around the community and its people, from year-round residents to hotel guests just stopping in for a night.

Where art takes heart

A veritable hub of culture, the East Village district boasts a host of murals, as well as a new library and the National Music Centre. A true paradise for arts enthusiasts.


Get to know it on foot

One of the most delightful things about East Village is that it can be discovered on foot. On top of exploring the public art, wall murals and numerous boutiques, you can stroll along the river on the Riverwalk, cross the bridge to St. Patrick's Island (less than a 10-minute walk from the hotel!) and enjoy a little nature right in the city. An area begging to be discovered!
