POW! Parade of Wonders

The 5th Annual POW! Parade of Wonders is a cosplay parade celebrating pop culture and creativity in Calgary’s downtown. It’s free to participate but there is a catch: to walk in the parade you must be decked out in cosplay (costume-play). Expo goers and downtown office workers alike get involved and join in on the fun and witness this unique event. The POW! Parade of Wonders takes place each year during the world-renowned Calgary Comic & Entertainment Expo (April 27-30, 2017 at Stampede Park).

The 2016 POW! Parade of Wonders was the biggest yet! Over 2,000 cosplayers paraded through the streets of Downtown Calgary for over thousands of spectators. You don’t want to miss out on this one-of-a-kind celebration.

2017 POW! PARADE OF WONDERS

The 2017 POW! Parade of Wonders will take place on April 28, 2017 between 10:30 a.m and 11:45 a.m., ending at Olympic Plaza. This year we’ll have a new route and new surprises in store! Spectators can expect an awesome show from the bleachers on sidelines of Stephen Avenue. Participants also have a great time:

MEET AT STARTING POINT
Cosplayers meet at starting point (TBA) to be placed into order (grouped by cosplay style)

WALK THE ROUTE
Usually about 30 minutes walk, complete with music and welcoming crowds.

CONCLUDE WITH OPENING CEREMONIES
Appox. 11:30 a.m.: The Parade concludes at Olympic Plaza with the formal kick off to Calgary Expo at our opening ceremonies.

We look forward to seeing you at the parade!

Registration will open January 17, 2017.
