About Calgary

Calgary – Heart of the New West™ is a great city to visit, live, work and play. Nestled in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, Calgary combines a thriving metropolis with Western roots and friendly small town hospitality. Learn more about Calgary’s rich history and discover Calgary’s advantage.  

Calgary has almost any entertainment you can imagine to offer.  For the sporting enthusiasts we have the Calgary Flames NHL team, the CFL’s Calgary Stampeders and Calgary Hitmen, our Junior Hockey Team.  We have heard from many newcomers to Calgary that we offer exceptional opportunities for our youth in sports at a community level and up.  Our close proximity to Kananaskis, Banff and Jasper afford us excellent winter and summer recreation as well as breath taking sight-seeing.  We are proud of our world class golf courses and accessibility for all levels of golfers.   Glenbow Museum, Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra, Alberta Ballet, Calgary Opera and numerous other local theatre groups enrich the cultural side of Calgarians.  We have diverse musical opportunities in a multitude of venues for whatever your taste is.

But, once per year, for 10 days, Calgarians don cowboy hats, jeans and boots to become “down right cordial” during the Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth-The Calgary Stampede and Exhibition. You can’t turn around without a free stampede breakfast or outdoor celebration of some kind inviting you in to have some fun.
