Calgary’s Home of Continuous Creativity
Located in the heart of the Cultural District in downtown Calgary, EPCOR CENTRE for the Performing Arts is where passion and creativity meet, mix, mingle and occasionally, collide.
Proving that this truly is the place to be, more than 600,000 people experience the excitement of EPCOR CENTRE yearly at 1,800-plus performances and events, both free and ticketed, including: live theatre, dance, spoken word and readings, children’s events, experimental theatre, art exhibits, public forums, weddings, training sessions, meetings, arts education activities, sporting events and competition, award ceremonies and concerts from symphonic music to jazz, folk, blues, world, rock and much more!
Occupying a full city block, EPCOR CENTRE is a six-level complex measuring over 400,000 square feet (almost 10 acres). It is one of the three largest performing arts centres in Canada and the largest in Western Canada. The excellent downtown location offers an unrivalled variety of vibrant and attractive spaces, including five theatres, and Jack Singer Concert Hall, home to one of Canada's largest pipe organs, the Carthy Organ. EPCOR CENTRE also houses rehearsal halls, theatre workshops, offices, meeting rooms, a café, radio station and gift store, with art works from community groups and galleries displayed throughout. Performance spaces range from the 1800-seat Jack Singer Concert Hall, one of the most beautiful and acoustically acclaimed venues in North America, to the intimate black box setting of the 60-seat Motel Theatre.
EPCOR CENTRE for the Performing Arts celebrates 25 years in the community.
