What’s On The Calendar

Plan your arts and entertainment calendar; get a look at what’s happening in the community:

University of Calgary Events

All of the entertainment you can handle is happening now. Get your fill of international athletic events, live theatre and performance art, and guest speakers and lecturers sharing big ideas about today’s most important topics.

UCalgary is a premiere cultural and entertainment destination, coming home to U/D means coming home to your arts, culture and entertainment dreams. Forget asking your neighbour for a cup of sugar; you’ll be asking them if they’re free Friday night to take in what UCalgary has to offer.

Main Street Socials

A hyper-connected, hyper-local communities thrives. The University District community—from residents to retailers, service providers to social spots—is designed to foster close-knit relationships between individuals who value selling and shopping local. In U/D, you can’t get more local than Main Street. The shops and eateries bringing vitality to the community offer more than great products, hosting events to teach you more about their goods, pique your interest, raise some eyebrows, tickle your taste buds…and much more.

Active Living Meet-Ups

When your friends are moving, you get moving. So, wave goodbye to your couch and say hello to your fitness apparel as you dive more deeply into your healthy and active lifestyle. With University District designed to promote active living and lifelong wellness, we’re dedicated to continually making movement easy to access and available to our entire community. Think bike tune-up events for avid cyclists, goat yoga (yes, it’s a thing), guest nutritionists and more ways to get, and keep, you healthy and vital.

Arts & Entertainment

What complements amazing public spaces? You, your friends and family, and some form of creative expression that connects you to one another, and the community at large. Living and visiting here, you’ll never be short of inspiration or reasons to come together. Local performers and artists will take the stage, showcase their work, and offer their unique perspectives to the U/D community. And creativity is said to inspire more creativity; maybe your artistic self is just waiting to be unleashed!
