How is a festival born?

In the case of East Town Get Down, it was born when the Major Minor Music Project met the International Avenue BRZ and they shared their visions.

International Avenue has been working for 25 years to draw attention to the incredible merchants and residents of Greater Forest Lawn, and celebrate the wonderfully diverse cultural and artistic pursuits of the people who live, work and play here.

Major Minor Music Project launched a mission to improve all-ages options for music events in Calgary, and this festival is indicative of the meteoric success that they have achieved so far.

East Town Get Down marries these two objectives. This is a unique independent music festival in Calgary for its location. At this festival, you will soak up your live music experience in intimate venues providing signature food and drink, giving each location a distinct flavour to go with its distinct sound.
