5. Art and Expression:

Inglewood is anything but bland, offering a freedom of expression like few others. Art displays, local festivals, and community involvement encourage a fresh take on this boutique community, offering an ever-evolving perspective on this already historic canvas. Day or night, the experience continues, as Inglewood night market promotes a magical evening on the town, getting to know your neighbors while supporting local vendors. On the other side of the clock, Sunfest assembles over 200 vendors, offering live music, kids activities, and more. These are just some of the official events, however, a walk down 9th avenue is sure to feel like a party at any time, as the atmosphere of Inglewood is something relished and sought after by Calgarians city-wide; living at Konekt means you have a front-row seat to dive right into the festivities, or take in the quaint nature that is right outside your door. Whatever expression or attitude of the day, Inglewood is right there with you.
