Located in BMO Centre Halls A, D & E, this cultural showcase is filled with colourful exhibits reflecting western heritage and values. And new to the Calgary Stampede for 2017, the Maker Market is an upscale and accessible marketplace of decorative, wearable, and functional handcrafted goods. Swing by and discover that next great gift or a unique souvenir. The market can be found in the BMO Centre Hall A and features local crafters, artists, and makers. Makers change over every few days, so make sure you keep coming back for new, unique, and beautiful items.
