Thanks to popular demand, Calgary’s most memorable gala will be returning in 2020. The Lit Gala features transformational experiences and distinct and notable cultural disruptors on every level of Calgary’s award-winning Central Library. As guests progress through the building, performers highlight our city’s vibrant cultural scene, and taste buds are tempted with an array of culinary delights.
Funds raised through the Lit Gala support a Spotlight Speaker Series for world-class thought leaders at the Central Library—providing free access to creative thinkers and fostering innovation and creative thought leadership in our city.
Located in the heart of Calgary’s East Village, the Central Library’s striking design welcomes plenty of natural light into its vast interior spaces. The Lit Gala takes its name from this concept, ushering in the light of knowledge to shine through the darkness.
