BIG Winter Classic was born out of an idea to celebrate Calgary year-round, not just in the fleeting summer months. Arts, music local beer and YOU collide at BIG Winter Classic for a four-day winter wonderland weekend.
We take the best and funnest people in our city and put them in a room together to create, imagine, dream, drink and play - all in the dead of winter. Because we’re Calgarians and dancing under patio heaters when it’s -15C outside actually sounds perfect.
Let’s not hide away this winter, let’s emerge from our homes and into our community; let’s re-group after the holidays and kick off the new year with glee; let’s bundle up and support our thriving music scene.
It’s already a classic.
