Tour: Redevelopment of Stampede Park To Date - Behind the Scenes

Thursday, Sep 13, 2018

Join CREW Calgary for an insider look at some of the new additions at Stampede Park such as the Youth Campus development including Enmax Park, the TransAlta Performing Arts Studio, and The BMO Amphitheater, as well as the recent renovations of The BIG FOUR Roadhouse.

Let’s take a look behind the scenes at the recent additions to the Youth Campus at Stampede Park.  Located on the banks of the Elbow River, the Youth Campus features ample green space and is custom-designed for indoor and outdoor classrooms, training and performing. The first Youth Campus facility, the TransAlta Performing Arts Studio, opened in March 2017.  This 13,000 square foot facility is home to The Young Canadians School of the Performing Arts and Calgary Stampede Showband, as well as other community groups.   In November 2017, The Calgary Stampede celebrated the opening of The BMO Amphitheater, which is an exciting outdoor performance and rehearsal space for Calgary’s youth to take their talent and passion to new heights. The space will be used by The Calgary Showband, The Young Canadians School of Performing Arts and Youth Campus partners like the Calgary Arts Academy, Calgary Fiddlers and Jazz YYC to rehearse and create.

We will also take a tour past ENMAX Park which is a 16-acre green space along the Elbow River that is linked to Calgary’s 900-kilometre pathway system and the 23,000-kilometre Trans Canada Trail.  It is home to the 650-metre-long Cenovus Legacy Trail that weaves through the park telling the story of the area through the lenses of First Nations People, Calgary and the Calgary Stampede, and during the annual Calgary Stampede, it is home to the historic Indian Village.

Over time, Youth Campus will also include Walton Hall, The SAM Centre, and Enbridge Plaza.  The Calgary Opera will also make their new home on Youth Campus.

The tour will then lead us to view the recent renovations of The BIG FOUR building which was originally built in 1958.  The building is now being called The BIG FOUR Roadhouse and is Calgary’s largest purpose built concert / event centre with capacity for over 4000 people.  Let’s have a detailed look at what phase 2 and 3 of the renovations look like for this venue.

Cocktails, appetizers, and networking will follow the trolley tour!
