Eau Claire Market has been a fixture of downtown Calgary for more than 30 years. Now set to close at the end of May, the mall is hosting a final farewell to give Calgarians a chance to say goodbye to the iconic building.

When Eau Claire Market opened in 1993, some thought it had the potential to be another Granville Island, and it was meant to be a space for businesses and community connection. While it didn’t reach Granville Island status, many Calgarians still enjoy memories of dates at the Eau Claire Cineplex, after-school hangs in the food court, or shopping after a visit to Prince’s Island Park.

On May 31, Eau Claire Market is set to officially close, making way for construction on the upcoming Green Line LRT Station. But, before its demolition, the mall is holding a final Farewell Celebration on May 11 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. This free festival will feature live music and performances, a community market, games and prizes, and an opportunity to sign the Memeaury Mural with memories of the space.

Other businesses in the area will continue to stay open, such as Joey Eau Claire and Local Public Eatery, and will eventually become part of the planned mixed-use area surrounding the Green Line station.
