The Grand, 608 1 St SW, Calgary
Bar Opens @ 6pm
Theatre opens @ 6:15pm
Show starts @ 7pm.

Parking and Transit:

We recommend arriving early for the best experience as there is ongoing construction in the area and free street parking may be limited. To plan your visit to The Grand, here are parking and transit recommendations from the venue:

Entering the Venue:

Please note that 1st Street SW in front of our building is reduced to a single lane north and a single lane south but it is still open to pedestrian traffic! If you are making arrangements to be dropped off or picked up, we recommend using the accessibility entrance on the north side of the building off 6th Avenue.

Audience Q&A:

Mr. Irving prefers to get audience questions in advance, so please submit questions via this link. Note: There will also be cards available before the show to fill out that will be collected before the show, but this is your best chance of having your question answered.

No Book Signing:

Owl’s Nest Books will have copies of this instant bestseller for sale at the event. (Note: Mr. Irving does not sign books at his events.)

We can’t wait to celebrate this living legend at 80!

Click here to watch our opening teaser ahead of Monday’s show, featuring an epic tour of book art and movie posters connected to Mr. Irving’s stellar legacy, and set to original music by Lux Logan.
