Programmed by the Calgary Folk Music Festival

We are very excited to be able to present the diverse indie, roots, traditional, and world music the festival is known for, all year round. The Calgary Folk Music Festival curates arts and culture events throughout the year in the hall, including film, food, theatre, poetry and workshops. Our 1600+ volunteer army uses the Hall as a meeting space as well, while our legendary annual festival of course remains on Prince's Island Park. 

How you can use Festival Hall?

Festival Hall is available to be rented as an affordable performance space for Calgary's artistic community, and is also available for corporate and private functions.

What’s inside Festival Hall?Screen Shot 2014 03 04 at 4.38.54 PM

The main performance hall is an architecturally developed room treated by acousticians. Patrons enter through the welcoming Gray's Lobby that includes Lisa a art installation of original woodcuts carved by Lisa Brawn and inspired by the nearby Inglewood Bird Sanctuary. Also gracing the lobby are our Drink Rail, elegantly inscribed with the names of our donors and supporters, and the Big Rock Emerson Bar. Lights and sound are most accomplished on the French's Catwalk, which includes adaptable light and multimedia fixtures that can accomodate a wide range of needs. Artists and performers will appreciate the Muruve Green Room downstairs, which is fully stocked and functional.

Where is Festival Hall?

Festival Hall is located at 1215 10th Ave SE. We are happy to have made a permanent home in Inglewood, an area rich in culture and history, and, in our estimation, a growing musical destination for Calgarians.

Is it a bar or a restaurant?

The Hall is primarily a curated music and arts facility. We are licensed for alchohol during events only, and will serve snacks and can accommodate limited catering. We encourage you to enjoy all of the amazing restaurants in Inglewood for pre and post-show meals. Festival Hall shows are all-ages.
