Rethinking Stephen Avenue
Stephen Avenue, located in the heart of downtown, is Calgary’s only pedestrian mall. During peak seasons upwards of 30,000 pedestrians will be on Stephen Avenue. It is a key retail, entertainment and cultural hub as well as an economic hub! To ensure the continued success of Stephen Avenue, it is critical to reimagine and improve the experience that Calgarians and visitors have while on this iconic and historical avenue.
Stephen Avenue Galleria Trees
The large white sculptures on Stephen Avenue between 2nd and 3rd street are referred to as the 'Galleria Trees'. In addition to programmable lighting, they are equipped with speakers which are programmed by Downtown Calgary. Learn more about these sculptures, and the music and lighting programming.
