Apollo is a volunteer-operated, non-profit organization serving primarily members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgendered and queer (LGBTQ+) communities but is open to members of all communities.
Apollo's multi-sport festival, Western Cup, will see over 1,500 attendees and athletes from across North America compete in a range of sport tournaments including volleyball, bowling, curling, dodgeball, and hockey.
In addition to the athletic events, our participants attend nightly social events at the luxurious Hyatt Regency in the heart of downtown Calgary: Thursday’s Registration, Friday’s Athlete Social, and on Saturday we transform The Hyatt’s Imperial Ballroom into Calgary’s largest LGBTQ+ dance party. Then the next morning, we cap it all off with the ever-hilarious Drag Brunch.
As always, at the Western Cup Dance we have an amazing lineup of DJs and have state-of-the-art lighting and sound to make for an unforgettable night. For our sponsors, it will be your chance to get your brand in front of our guests while supporting a great cause.
Every year a portion of our proceeds are donated to local charities supporting youth, sports, and the LGBTQ+ community.
