Follow 9th Avenue East, past the tall buildings of downtown and you will eventually arrive at the famed bridge that leads straight into the heart of Calgary’s history: Inglewood. The multifarious community of Inglewood was Calgary’s original downtown and is Calgary’s oldest neighborhood. Eclectic shops, some of the city’s tastiest eateries and various music venues make this close-knit community beautifully unique.
Stroll down 9th Avenue and you’ll find a neighborhood brimming with independent, creative businesses. Design shops, organic clothing stores, cafes and art galleries fill the store-fronts of Inglewood’s old buildings, offering something uniqu and inspiring to everyone who visits. The community buzzes with creativity and is host every year to Calgary’s SunFest, The Fringe Festival and the Inglewood Night Market.
Inglewood was crowned Canada’s greatest neighborhood by the Canadian Institute of Planners.
