11th Avenue between 5th and 8th street has been coined SODO (South Downtown), The Design District. This part of Calgary is home to the top contemporary art galleries, furniture stores, restaurants and other unique small businesses. A number of years ago, we started to have Block Parties to promote the area and support each other.
This spring, the Block Party is on Saturday, June 1st from 12 – 5 pm. There will be exciting and vibrant art, contemporary design, food, wine, live music, dancing, special events, sales and prizes. Please show your support for local business! Bring the whole family and spend the day on the Avenue!
