You’re not afraid of a little cold, are you?!

From February 4 – 27, 2022, Chinook Blast will be heating up our city with a celebration of community, culture, and civic pride. Make a plan to check out Calgary’s art, music, theatre, sport, and recreation, and embrace the season with your family! You can cozy up fireside on outdoor patios or capture moments among the lovely outdoor art installations. Enjoy the excellent anchoring events and plenty of other activities, including Community Pop-Ups, The Hub, and Friends of Chinook Blast.

Last February was the first for Chinook Blast and this year, it will be bigger and better. It’s now a six-week winter festival celebration that will include five main events. (Please note: we have heard rumours some of the concerts and festival-type features of this event are cancelled. Find the latest updates HERE.)

  • High Performance Rodeo, a 33-year institution of performing art in Calgary: Cancelled for now
  • Calgary Folk Music Festival’s Block Heater, one of the city’s fastest-growing music festivals
  • Glow Festival, an awe-inspiring winter festival with lights and more
  • Ethnik Festival of Arts & Culture
  • BIG Winter Classic, a 4-day winter music and arts festival: Postponed till a later date
