HCW 2023 Wrap up Report Historic Calgary Week 2023 is finalized and wrapped up for another year. Thank you to all who attended and especially those that brought their personal experiences to the events. A huge thank you to our presenters whose many hours of research and reflection brought a richness to the presentations of our history. We are grateful for the work of the Winnifred Eaton Archive from the University of British Columbia in bringing the diverse and controversial history of Winnifred Eaton to HCW 2023. We also appreciated the wisdom of Clarence Wolfleg as well as the address by Councillor Terry Wong at our opening ceremonies.
The tremendous contribution of our volunteers is much appreciated as Historic Calgary Week could not exist without their dedication and hard work.

One hundred forty years ago, the Canadian Pacific Railway arrived in Calgary. The same year, the Calgary Herald presses travelled on the CPR to Calgary and set up shop in a tent. Together, they provided Calgary with connections to the outside world that set the stage for our city’s growth into the world class city it is today. The Historic Calgary Week Giant Crossword Puzzle has transportation as its theme. So, Get A Move On and solve this puzzle and plan to attend some of the 82 events during the 11 days of Historic Calgary Week.
