I have seen over 40 NHL hockey games and around 20 rock concerts at the Saddledome over the last 38 years. The building is a little bit dated, but I've enjoyed every event that I've attended there.

No offence to the poor souls that work here, but this arena is truly antiquated, crowded, poorly designed and electronically woefully out of date relative to any other arena built in the last 20 years. The Stampede grounds are also dump-like at night with little...More

We walked from the Hotel Arts to the Saddledome Stadium following the red shirted Calgary Flames supporters. Less than a 10 minute walk. What a great night and top atmosphere. Unfortunately the Flames didn't win but we had plenty of instruction on the rules, best...More

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
