No real reason to go there, unless you are attending a sports event, or the Calgary Stamped. There are a few exhibits (sport-related) to see.

The saddledome is nothing spectacular. It's just your average stadium, uncomfortable seats, gross bathrooms and very, very overpriced drinks.

The last few regular season Calgary Flames hockey 🏒 games and the playoffs if they make it. The lacrosse team also may have games. Check ticket master or stub hub for concerts

Hi, it was James Taylor I went to see and there were two large screens on either side of the stage. If you check the seating map it should be helpful also. Enjoy the show!
