"One of the most amazing things about living in the East Village has been watching an abandoned area of town blossom into an exciting new community in the heart of the city. The love and attention that had been missing in our neighborhood for so long has finally starting to shine through. In the last couple of years the East Village Action Committee has not only made huge improvements to the area by making wider, more pedestrian friendly sidewalks and beautiful cobblestone street, they have launched exciting events and activities that invite the residents of the community and its supporters to come together to enjoy all that we have to offer. My favorite is the East Village Street Fair that happens right outside the Orange Lofts every Canada Day. They close off all the streets to create a walking mall right down 8thavenue. There are amazing bands, street performers, craft tents, delicious food vendors and big exhibition of antique cars just a few steps away at Fort Calgary. Last summer they also had free weekly outdoor yoga classes and a Sled Island East Village Block Party with more live performances, a skateboard competition and tons of food trucks. Since it’s walking distance to the Stampede, Inglewood, Downtown and the gorgeous new River Walk that leads to Princess Island and the Calgary Zoo there is never a shortage of fun things to do right in your own backyard."
