POW! Parade of Wonders Presented by Downtown Calgary and the Calgary Comic & Entertainment Expo

The POW! Parade of Wonders is a cosplay parade celebrating pop culture and creativity in Calgary’s downtown, and the official kick off to the Calgary Comic & Entertainment Expo! Last year over 23,000 people took in the event! Come watch to witness thousands of cosplayers in incredible fan costumes and say hello to a few of Calgary Expo’s special celebrity guests. It’s free to participate, but there is a catch … to walk in the parade you MUST be decked out in cosplay. To walk in the parade, be sure to register online (solo or as a group).


Expo goers and downtown office workers alike get involved and join in on the fun and witness this unique event.

The parade departs at 10:30 am and parades from 8th St down Stephen Avenue (8th Avenue) to conclude at Olympic Plaza at 11:15 am.
