The excitement takes place at Shaw Millennium Park at 1220 - 9 Ave. S.W. Both pay and street parking is available and they will bring you within walking distance to the event.

If you're interested in a cool drink, there's a beer garden at the event. There will also be a wide selection of food being sold from concession stands. You're allowed to bring your own snacks to the event but if you want to drink any alcohol you'll need to buy it on site.

At the Record Tent, you can check out the music recordings and artists will come to the tent to sign autographs following their performances on the main stage. There will also be an arts market on site at the Calgary Bluesfest, which will include festival souvenirs, Bluesfest merchandise and handcrafted items that have been created locally.

If you're interested in bringing along your own shares, make sure that the legs on them are 12 inches high or lower. If they are any higher, you'll have to sit at the back. As well, please note that pets are not allowed on the grounds at the Calgary Bluesfest.
