Festival and Events 101

Festival and Events 101 sessions are an important means through which our events services unit provides ongoing support and professional development opportunities to event organizers.

Topics for the Festivals & Events 101 series are chosen based on expressed event organizer need, best practices or as a platform to communicate changes to our policy or process. All sessions are free but registration is required. Information on specific sessions will be posted here as it becomes available.

Subscribe to The City of Calgary Event Services email updates. You will receive approximately 10-15 bulletins per year, which contain information for organizers of both large and small events, festivals, walks and runs in Calgary. We will keep you up to date on our services, City policy, process and permit changes, event subsidies, important deadlines, and professional development sessions.‚Äč
