17th Ave Retail & Entertainment District
Over 400 unique shops, services and more to explore. Only on 17th Ave.
It’s been known as Uptown 17th , the Red Mile, or simply 17th Ave. But in 2013, after 17 years of the current Uptown brand, 17th Avenue has unveiled a fresh new look that reflects its vibrant personality and reputation as a local living landmark.
The new brand is 17th Ave Retail & Entertainment District - a name that embraces Calgary’s much-loved colour while recognizing the area’s best assets.
Set in a lively outdoor environment the district spans 17th Ave between 2nd and 14th Street SW – close to downtown and Stampede Park. Boutique shops, fine-dining restaurants, lively lounges and inspirational cafes mix to create Calgary’s Retail & Entertainment District. There are also a host of salons and spas, business offices and services that include everything from tailors to dentists.
Besides gaining national fame during the Calgary Flames’ 2004 Stanley Cup run, 17th Ave has been a popular destination for Calgarians and visitors for decades. Come experience all that 17th Ave has to offer.
