Welcome To Music Mile

Historic, trendy and soulful, with great restaurants and one-of-a-kind retail, Music Mile is Calgary’s original main street. It’s a great place for a walk, popular for its fine dining, galleries and proximity to attractions like Fort Calgary, the Calgary Zoo, St. Patrick’s Island and RiverWalk. 

Above all, MUSIC MILE is buzzing with musical energy generated by the talented musicians who perform here year round, in all genres, at an extraordinary variety of venues.

Where is MUSIC MILE exactly?  
It’s 9th Avenue SE from the Blues Can in Inglewood to Studio Bell (the home of theNational Music Centre) in East Village, with great live music houses like Ironwood Stage & Grill, 500 Cucina, the Alexandra Centre (home of the U of C Ballroom Dance Club and rehearsal hall for the Calgary Civic Symphony) and Fort Calgary (home to outdoor festivals and the newest live music stage on MUSIC MILE, Burnswest Theatre) in between.  

Blocks near 9th in Inglewood and East Village are bursting with more music venues than you could imagine – Folk Fest’s Festival Hall, The Nash, Cafe Gravity, the Lantern Church, Charbar, Bite Groceteria, Calgary Opera’s Opera in the Village and more.  

​The Inglewood Night Market, Calgary Fringe, SunFest, JazzYYC and East Village bring professional live music onto the street throughout the warm months.  

The concept of MUSIC MILE was nurtured into being through the work of a small cadre of volunteers now dubbed the MUSIC MILE CREW:  Meg Van Rosendaal, Bob Chartier, Sarah Stephenson, Greg Curtis, Kerry Clarke, Chad Saunders, Jim Button, John Rutherford and Colleen Krueger – many of these names synonymous with live music in Calgary.  Read more about how MUSIC MILE got started in STORIES.

And now it’s run by the MUSIC MILE stakeholders through the Music Mile Society of Calgary, a Non-Profit dedicated to promoting and enhancing MUSIC MILE as a popular pedestrian destination for Calgarians and tourists alike.  This is just the start – watch it grow!
