Upcoming Events on International Avenue


Coming back strong for a third year,

its Calgary's biggest musical block party on International Avenue!

East Town Get Down is unique in the way it brings together and celebrates Calgary’s thriving independent music scene with the dynamic (and delicious!) international flavour of 17th Avenue SE.
Happening along six-blocks of International Avenue and inspired by festivals like SXSW, you’ll find performances in a fun range of intimate and unlikely venues including small ethnic bistros, a bowling alley, and beautiful Unity Park.
Of course, INTL AVE’s amazing international restaurants are a big part of the unique “flavour” of this event. Dubbed “East Town Chow Down” festival goers can once again enjoy $5 dollar food plates at the various venues and enjoy tasty international cuisine from a variety of cultures.
A family-friendly event where youth age 12 and under are able to enter all-ages venues free of charge when accompanied by a paid adult, mark your calendars!
