5 must-hit events at Deerfoot City this summer
Calgary’s newest destination, Deerfoot City, formerly known to most as Deerfoot Mall, has been undergoing a total transformation. The reinvention of this once outdated retail space consisted of an 80-acre metamorphosis. From revamping the previous Deerfoot Mall into a stunning, landscaped, open-air shopping centre, Deerfoot City is evolving into a modern social hub where you can gather, shop, play and eat.
