Festival Hall is an intimate performance and event space in historic Inglewood. The Hall is also the new home of the Calgary Folk Music Festival office.
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 and during the summer, our 1600+ volunteer army uses the Hall as a meeting space for preparation for our legendary annual festival, which, of course, remains on Prince's Island Park.
How you can use Festival Hall?
Festival Hall is available to be rented as an affordable space for Calgary's artistic community, and is also available for corporate and private functions and events including weddings, meetings, parties, fundraisers, or whatever else you can think up.
What’s inside Festival Hall?
Patrons enter Festival Hall through the welcoming Gray's Lobby and are greeting by an art installation of original woodcuts, carved by local artist Lisa Brawn and inspired by the nearby Inglewood Bird Sanctuary. Also gracing the lobby is our Drink Rail, elegantly inscribed with the names of our donors and supporters. The drink rail is a great place to hold drinks purchased at the Big Rock Emerson Bar. The main performance hall has been treated by professional acousticians, and it looks and sounds immaculate. Our theatre lighting beams down from French's Catwalk, which includes adaptable light and multimedia fixtures that can accomodate a wide range of needs. The backstage area also leads downstairs into the Muruve Green Room, which can accomodate hair, makeup, and costume changes, as well as all manner of pre-show banter.
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, a growing musical destination for Calgarians, and the main stretch of the Music Mile.
