Stephen Avenue Walk is a wonderful place all year. It's a bit tricky when it's cold in the winter to enjoy it as much, but Calgary has inaugurated a couple of winter festivals, Chinook Blast and Calgary Glow, to make this amazing place more inviting at that time. The festivals are slightly different, but their operations overlap, and so to know more about them, you DO need to consult their web sites. It's brilliant for families with kids, adults who just want to see something unique, photographers, anybody who just wants to get out in on a winter's evening. It VERY well organized, washrooms, fire pits, things to see and do. If you live in Calgary, or are visiting, DO NOT miss Stephen Avenue Walk during the winter festivals!
