Some of you might want to have your wedding in a golf course setting. Others would prefer a to check a list of romantic wedding venues. Yet there is always a place and time for a wedding at a community centre. It’s a great thing that Calgary has a few of those and this post is featuring exactly that. I’m not promising that it’s a complete list, but these are the most notable facilities I have found. Feel free to add more in the comments!
By the way, make sure you check our Calgary Venues page. We wanted to simplify your life by putting the best venues in Calgary into a list sorted by size with details on each venue. We hope you like it.
The Glencoe Club
It doesn’t look like much in the photo, but that can be a good thing. Working with a blank slate like the ballroom at the Glencoe Club can provide creative couples with endless opportunities to come up with the exact ambiance they want. Source.
Polish Canadian Cultural Centre
The Polish Canadian Cultural Centre is a practical venue for any type of reception or banquet. Unlike any other community hall, the Centre was built primarily for banquets and theatre performances. Source.
Al Azhar Shriners
The Al Azhar Shrine Centre is situated in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, overlooking a beautiful lake on the shores of the Bow River just west of the city centre. The facilities are available for weddings, receptions, company parties, meetings, company BBQ’s, etc. Source.
