I’m starting to plan my trip to Calgary next year, looking to stay close to where the “Festivities? are (Tiger Town, Spirit of Edmonton ect). Does anyone have any idea in what area of Calgary the Festival will be ? I'm assuming Downtown, but where?

The main hotels would be downtown for the major events like Riderville, Tiger Town, and Spirit of Edmonton. As for the Grey Cup Village, I'm guessing maybe in Olympic Plaza, if not close to the Steven Avenue Mall. Fortunately, getting to and from the game from downtown is easy: take a northwest C-Train to Banff Trail then it's a walk/drunken stagger over to McMahon.
