Visitor Guide: Welcome to Calgary!
Welcome to Calgary!
The 2015 Tim Horton Brier returns to Calgary, the scene of the 2009 edition of the Canadian men’s curling championship, when Kevin Martin skipped Team Alberta to a victory celebration.
The 2009 championship wrapped up with the third-highest attendance in the history of the event. The numbers are partially a reflection of the sport’s popularity in Alberta, but also confirmation that people from across the country, and around the world, absolutely love to visit Calgary.
Situated in the foothills of the breathtaking Rocky Mountains, the city once commonly known as “Cowtown” has emerged as a thriving, world-acclaimed cosmopolitan centre. A vibrant sporting scene, coupled with unlimited opportunities for cultural, entertainment and fine dining experiences, makes Calgary the ideal setting for the 2015 Tim Hortons Brier.
