LobbyFest is an Urban Futures Festival.

Downtown needs to incite delight and show-off a future-forward city ready to be THE place where we’re building what’s next. What better way to show-off a city’s innovation culture than by turning downtown into a living lab?

Downtowns are the engine of innovation and economic growth – the heart of a city where ideas and people collide – where innovation thrives. But downtowns have been struggling.

LobbyFest transforms downtown tower lobbies and laneways into immersive public spaces and pop-ups.

Explore the future of Calgary’s downtown through the eyes and ideas of a community of creators, entrepreneurs, designers and city-shapers.
