About this Walk

The mile-long stretch of 9th Avenue SE from The Blues Can in Inglewood to Studio Bell in East Village (home of the National Music Centre) was dubbed Calgary’s Music Mile in January 2016. Bob Chartier, the “street-corner Mayor of Music Mile,” hosts this year’s Saturday Music (almost a) Mile Jane’s Walk. Bob has more tall tales about this district’s fabulous musical history and exciting future than anyone.

Meet Bob at Fort Calgary and wind up there at the end of your tour. The focus is on the Inglewood part of the Music Mile. Accessibility notes: We’ll be on relatively flat city sidewalks. No pets please, as we may go inside some Music Mile establishments.
