Downtown Calgary


Display & Activation Permits

A permit is required to host a booth, display, or activation on Stephen Avenue, including Stampede and seasonal displays. Permit fees are dependent on the size and purpose of your set up. Please allow 7-10 days for permit processing.

Stephen Avenue does NOT include the Olympic Plaza/Burns Building Block (200 8th Ave SE). Contact 3-1-1, or 403-268-2489 if you are outside Calgary, to request permits for this block.

Please note that consultation with our Street Operations Supervisor is required for:

  • Line queueing wait zones.
  • Setting up outdoor booths for your store.
  • Having tents or canopies on Stephen Avenue
  • Installation of all large décor items. Pre-approval is required to ensure we are managing traffic on Stephen Avenue. Your permit is subject to a Calgary Fire code inspection.
