Downtown Activation Grant

The Calgary Downtown Association is looking for applicants for our Downtown Activation Grant. Let us know how you want to activate public space in downtown Calgary this summer.

We want to hear from individuals, businesses, and organizations.

For successful applicants, we will help with logistics (obtaining locations, needed services, permits, etc.), help to cover costs, and pay you an honorarium. Please note that the monetary amount that we can assist with will depend on the scale of your idea!

Events and activations will run June to September 2022.

We’re looking for events and activations of all kinds.

Some examples of what we can help with:

  • You want to plan a weekend pop-up market and you have all your vendors, but nowhere to hold it? We are downtown location finding experts!
  • You have a killer idea for an art installation, the know how to do it, but need some help with funding and permitting? We can help with that!
  • You want to hold a battle of the bands at Olympic Plaza, got your band line up sorted, and have a schedule planned, but need help with security and A/V tech rentals? We’ve got you covered!

Applications will be open until April 29, 2022.

The application and more information can be found at
