The best place to stay in Calgary!

Christmas is coming! And that means you need to start getting gifts for everyone on your list. Calgary is the perfect place to find something special for your loved ones. Not only do we not have sales tax (a definite plus if you’re from out of province), but we have lots of one-of-a-kind opportunities for getting something REALLY special!


Every year the Spruce Meadows Christmas Market gives Calgarians a shopping experience filled with entertainment, delicious food, and unique gift buying opportunities. This year there will be 300+ vendors, as well as 74 kilometres of colourful lights transforming the fair grounds into a winter wonderland! Live performances lend the perfect complement to your Christmas shopping experience – listen to choir and instrumental performances, view magical dance displays, and have a great time with your family while finding unique gifts that everyone will love!

The Spruce Meadows Christmas Market takes place on the following weekends: November 17 – 19, 24 – 26, and December 1 – 3, 2017. Get more details here!


A showcase for some of Western Canada’s most talented artisans, the Festival of Crafts will take place over four days, from December 7-10. Taking place at the BMO Centre at Stampede Park, over 250 artists, designers and craftspeople will be selling truly outstanding art pieces that you your friends and family will love forever. Find locally made handmade goods, including fashion, jewellery, home décor, sculptures, glassware, natural body care, and delicious gourmet treats and more. Full details here!


Throughout the end of November and all of December, the Calgary Farmer’s Market transforms into the Calgary Christmas Market! Dine on locally made treats while finding hand made gifts and fresh produce that will elevate Christmas dinner into something truly special. What’s more, special events like Tea Time with Mrs. Claus and Cookie Decorating with Santa make this a perfect day trip for the whole family! Find out more here!
