When is the Opening Ceremony and is it mandatory?


We welcome everyone to attend the Opening Ceremonies on Sunday (event day) at 8:15AM on 6th Avenue SE in front of the BOW building. There will be a procession in of the Calgary Fire Department Honour Guard, the Pipe Band, and some dignitaries. Yes, there will be a few short speeches and the presentation of the TOP FUNDRAISING awards to individual and team winners. The first climbers will begin their ascent at approximately 9:00AM.

Family and friends are invited to attend the opening ceremonies as well. There will be a public area for people to congregate and to wait for the climbers to finish and return to street level. It is not mandatory that climbers attend, but it is a nice way to start the day and to celebrate each other together!
