Annual Canada Day Block Party
MarketSpot holds a massive outdoor party on Canada Day, featuring nearly 100 vendors, 2 live music stages, food trucks, kid's activities and more!
Marketspot's Canada Day events took place at Eau Claire Market from 2014-2017. Last year, we moved the party to a new home at Max Bell Arena! Our event features food trucks, a massive market, beer gardens and the BEST view of the fireworks in all of Calgary!
MARKETSPOT Pop Up Shops
MarketSpot held an indoor annual Winter market, over the holiday season from 2014-2016.
In 2017, our Winter Event was a Pop Up Shop in Southcentre Mall, featuring nearly 70 local businesses. This was a widely popular Shop, and was back by popular demand for Mother's Day weekend 2018.
The success of these pop ups led Marketspot to open a 6mo pop up shop at the Core Mall from Aug 2018-Jan 2019, and a second location at Cross Iron Mills in Nov-Dec 2018.
We are thrilled to announce our new locations at Chinook Mall open April 2019-Spring 2020, and Market Mall from Oct 2019-Jan 30 2020!
MarketSpot hosted weekly markets on 17th avenue in Tomkins Park in 2015 & 2016. This market included live music, performers, artisan vendors, produce, kids crafts and more! Summer 2016, MarketSpot introduced a weekday program from wednesdays-fridays which included free classes daily; art, dance, fitness, kids programs and more.
Marketspot worked with Buds of Buds, the City of Calgary, and Bridgeland Riverside Community Centre in July 2018 to create the first annual Sundown Social event. Taking root in the community of Bridgeland under a flyover, this event reclaimed an under utilized space. We transformed the space with cut blossoms, and wildflowers, while inviting the community to help us build a permanent art installation with painted birdhouses! All while enjoying an amazing line up of local music, and a marketplace of local artisan vendors.
