EV Music Pavilion

Set against the backdrop of the picturesque George C. King Bridge and the natural beauty of the Bow River between East Village and Fort Calgary, the EV Music Pavilion adds another layer of programmable public gathering space along EV’s popular RiverWalk.

The unveiling of the pavilion on July 6, 2016 marked a high note in the harmonious relationship between Calgary and its sister city, Québec City. The pavilion was a gift to the City of Calgary to mark the 100th anniversary of the Calgary Stampede in 2012. The 2013 floods, however, delayed finding just the right location for the $285,000 legacy gift. At last in 2016 in the Year of Music, Calgary's newest music pavilion - a replica to its sister in la belle province – found its home in East Village.

The 7.5 x 7.5 metre octagonal pavilion is topped with a weather vane, so that Calgarians will always know which way the wind blows. EV Music Pavilion’s 450 sq. ft. of deck space will ensure that there’s ample room for live music along the banks of the Bow, regardless of gusts, breezes or chinooks, for many decades to come.
