Kensington is a busy place! The BIA works hard to maintain the public realm, add new art, create a safe and inclusive community, build inroads with the City of Calgary departments, and continue to market and grow the Kensington brand. There’s always something going on in our shopping district.
We will be expanding this area in the coming months to provide news, information and resources for our members and the community at large.
