We’re almost at the finish line! After years of chatter, budget meetings and 2 million construction hours from nearly 5,000 tradespeople, Calgary’s $500 Million BMO Expansion is gearing up to welcome the public, ushering in a new chapter for the Stampede grounds.

Located in the emerging culture and entertainment district, this extraordinary upgrade will have 50,000 square feet of rentable space, 350,000 square feet of contiguous exhibit space, and promises to make “gatherings even greater.”

“As development manager for this transformative project, Calgary Municipal Land Corporation is proud to have delivered the BMO Centre expansion on schedule and on budget,” said Kate Thompson, CMLC’s President and CEO.

“This is a major accomplishment for CMLC and our partners, and a huge step toward achieving our vision for a vibrant and active Culture + Entertainment District. The expanded BMO Centre is second to none in its design architecture and functionality, and sets a new precedent for convention facilities.”

From concerts to markets, the 1 million square foot building will boast ample adaptable interior spaces, meeting rooms, Canada’s largest fireplace, and inviting outdoor spaces which will be great come the spring when it opens.

As confirmed on their website – the new and improved BMO will open to the public in June 2024 just in time for the Calgary Stampede – so get ready!

Big things are happening and it’ll be a matter of time before you can experience it for yourself.
