WHAT COULD A YEAR-ROUND EXPERIENCE LOOK LIKE? Virtual roundtable discussion about the future of Calgary Chinatown.

About this Event

Topic #4: Visitor Experience

Chinatown has a calendar of annual flagship events celebrating Chinese New Year, Canada Day, and the summertime through the Chinatown Street Festival. These celebrations are big draws to the area of visitors from across Calgary. Despite this strong event programming , Chinatown is not necessarily eventful at other times.

For Chinatown to evolve as a centre of culture, it needs enough events to engage and hold people’s attention throughout the whole year. How can Chinatown provide visitors a year-round calendar of events and attractions that offer everyday enjoyment, learning and relatable experiences?

Discussion Topics

  • Full calendar: what everyday, all-season experiences and activities can Chinatown uniquely offer?
  • Nearby attractions: how do we link Chinatown to other famous Calgary attractions?
  • Promotion: how can we best promote what is happening in Chinatown and build a strong brand?


This is for anyone with an interest in Calgary Chinatown, and who wants to discuss the experiences, culture and future opportunities of this unique community.

Residents - Artists - Young Professionals - Entrepreneurs - Seniors - Students - Everyone who's curious and eager to learn and contribute!




This will be a virtual discussion with opportunity for everyone to speak. The session is not recorded for the public to view, except for note-taking purposes. An anonymized summary of the outcomes will be shared with the public.

Online Platform

Registration is required. We will send you a session link one day before the event and will post this link on the online event page as well.
