5 Things To Do in Calgary Post Stampede Season

Whether you’re in town for the holidays or just a quick trip the city has plenty to do this winter!

Calgary might be known for its Stampede (and who could blame them, it’s amazing), but have you ever visited the city during their off season? Check out our top 5 activities to do this winter in Cowtown.

Inglewood Night Market

With the holiday season in full swing, take a trip to the Inglewood Night Market (Holiday Edition) to check off your gifts for the nice people on your list. Filled with handmade crafts to vintage clothing, antiques & collectibles, artisan eats & more you’re sure to find something for everyone. Plus, stay around for a hot chocolate and enjoy live music by the fire.


Back for it’s 25th year, ZOOLIGHTS is a magical holiday tradition the whole family will love. Featuring exciting new themed areas and activities including the new Memory Lane, the Nutcracker in the ENMAX Conservatory, an all new “Tunnel of Light'' this is sure to light up your winter!

Explore Peace Bridge

One of Calgary’s most iconic views, the Peace Bridge is just as beautiful in the winter! We suggest bundling up and taking a stroll down River walk with a hot drink from the Eau Claire market on a sunny afternoon.

Attend a Calgary Flames game

As we’re writing this, the Calgary Flames are second in the Pacific Division, only behind… you guessed it – the Edmonton Oilers. Gear up for the rivalry of the season and catch a game at none other than the Scotiabank Saddledome.
