Visiting Calgary isn’t just about the Stampede and horses. There’s a vibrant arts scene happening here in this increasingly hip city and Managing Editor Adrian Brijbassi was there to see it for himself.

“This city of 1.1 million has grown by more than 20 per cent in the past six years as more Canadians from the east, who a generation ago would have stopped in Toronto for work, skip over the nation’s largest city for the draw of big paydays and security in Calgary. Until this year, though, there was little attention paid to Calgary’s efforts in using money made from the oil-and-gas industry — the source of plenty of Alberta’s wealth — to boosting the city’s image as an arts, music and dining hot spot,” Brijbassi wrote earlier this year, noting the city’s cowboy culture is becoming more diverse and sophisticated thanks to its artists and musicians.

Fairmont Palliser Urban Escape Package includes:

  • One night accommodation in a Fairmont guest room or upgraded room category
  • Full buffet breakfast for two at The Rimrock Restaurant
  • Valet parking for one vehicle
  • Shopping card for 15% discount (for out-of-town guests only) at The Bay Downtown
