A Christmas market is coming to the St. Louis Hotel! @sheempowersyyc is all about girl power, so they’re hosting a market where all the goodies for sale are made by female entrepreneurs.
Market admission is free, but donations to @mustardseedyyc will be appreciated and accepted at the door ♥️
Swipe left for a list of vendors! ⬅️
Calling all artists – RiverWalk is preparing for its next public art installation!
@vancharlesart’s ‘Window to the Wild’ has been a beloved artwork in our rotation of temporary installations – we can’t count the number of Instagram photo shoots we’ve seen!
Though we’ll be sad to say goodbye to these wild creatures, we’re excited to welcome a new artist to our Art in the Public Realm program.
Visit calgarymlc.ca/consultant-opportunities to see the RFP.

Embrace the holiday season with family and friends on #StPatricksIsland!
Winter fun and festivities will keep you toasty from noon-2PM, but stick around afterward for an exclusive showing of Smallfoot on our daytime movie screen (2-4PM).
We’ll be set up at the Amphitheatre, which is next to the parking lot. Don’t forget to BYOB (Bring Your Own Blankets)!
Welcome to the neighbourhood, @althotel!
The doors have now opened to 152 modern guest rooms, 3,400 sq. ft. of meeting space, an on-the-go food counter, and AltExpo – an artwork composed of #YYC photos from local artist @thelivingbreathingstreet. And in 2019, two restaurants will open in the hotel to amp up the food offerings for both Alt guests and East Villagers.
Who’s ready for a staycation?! 🙋♀️🙋♂️
Shop from and support local female entrepreneurs at the She[EMPOWERS] Christmas Market from December 14-16. The market will feature artisan wares, entertainment by female performers, and free workshops with topics ranging from sustainable fashion to jewelry-making.

The holidays really are magical – at least on the painted windows of downtown #YYC they are! ❄️
