Our History: Giving Back to the Community

Steeped in decades of rich and unique history, The Calgary Shrine Event Centre sits on acres of serene, tree-lined land in northwest Calgary.
From a century-old barn to a lake that got its start providing ice to the Canadian Pacific Railway, the Centre is unlike anything in Calgary.
The Centre is home to the Southern Alberta Shriners and helps them support both local charities and
the 22 Shriners Hospitals for Children in North America that provide specialized pediatric care..
