Festival of Quilts

Note: Due to ongoing concerns surrounding COVID-19, Festival of Quilts has been cancelled.


It's the 25th anniversary of the Festival of Quilts, and we have a lot in store for Western Canada’s largest outdoor quilt show! Hundreds of stunning handmade quilts of all shapes, sizes and techniques will decorate the Park's exhibits inside and out.

Whether you’re an avid quilter or simply enjoy viewing the beautiful work, there is quilting fun to be had all over the Park:

• Wander over to the Merchants' Mall where a variety of businesses from across western Canada will be offering the 'latest and greatest' from the quilting community.

Quilt Community Showcase - Visit with guild members to discover what quilters in Calgary are working on.

• How-to demonstrations to inspire your creativity

• Iron Quilt Challenges - Machines and fingers will fly as you come and watch two teams of four square off in the Iron Quilt Challenge!
