Fort Calgary is situated on the eastern edge of downtown at the confluence of the Bow and Elbow Rivers. In 1875, the North-West Mounted Police constructed a wooden fort here that served as the seedling for the future city of Calgary. Today, the Fort Calgary interpretive centre features interactive exhibits and colourful stories from Calgary’s past. Sunday brunch is also a popular draw here, as are monthly dinner theatre events.
The site of Calgary’s first North West Mounted Police facility is open the entire long weekend. A stroll through this interpretive centre at the pretty confluence of the Bow and Elbow rivers east of downtown takes visitors on an informative tour of the city's pioneer-era growth. Drop in on Sunday and to add the fort's weekly brunch to your historical adventure. Hours: 9 am to 5 pm.
The Officer’s Mess at Fort Calgary is available for rent for private events such as weddings. With a relatively low rental fee, it can accommodate up to 144 people for wedding service and reception needs.
