How We Do It
We are proud to be a recognized member of the Federation of Calgary Communities and are founded by engaged residents with a history of service in their communities who wanted to build an accessible and diverse association open to all residents to get involved in making the Beltline an even better place.
We’ve done some amazing things together!
We hosted new and exciting programming including:
The Beltline Bonspiel
Last February, we hosted The Beltline Bonspiel, the first outdoor curling bonspiel in Calgary in over a hundred years. The event was hosted at Beaulieu Gardens beside the Lougheed House on a community rink built by the BNA. The bonspiel was a friendly competition between four curling teams from the Beltline Neighbourhoods Association, Inglewood CA, Sunalta CA, Bankview CA and CBC Calgary competed for the 1915 Brewer’s Trophy Cup,
While one curling rink was used for the Bonspiel competition, a second curling rink was provided for all members of the community, young and old, to try curling.
Beltline Neighbour Day
Every year the BNA hosts a celebration of our community in the Beltline. This year’s celebration included the launch of the 2018 Beltline Urban Murals Project (BUMP) lineup with a celebration in Central Memorial Park with live music, DJs, and an outdoor movie screening of Fantastic Mr. Fox!
We hosted the first annual Beltline Urban Murals Project (BUMP) Festival August 30 to September 1, 2018 across the Beltline, in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Over a thousand festival visitors from all over Calgary joined us for mural tours and artist events as a flurry of new murals were painted. The festival culminated with an alley party featuring live music, local food & beer, and hands-on art creation for all-ages.
