Jenny Belzberg Theatre Grand Opening Weekend

May 7 - 8, 2022

Banff Centre’s Jenny Belzberg Theatre Grand Opening Weekend will be an unforgettable two days of world-class performances in celebration of the new theatre and the hundreds of talented artists and patrons who will benefit from the revitalization.

Saturday, May 7 will feature a private reception and dinner for 275 guests, along with a grand opening concert in the new Jenny Belzberg Theatre for 600 guests. The evening will feature performances by talented artists from Alberta and the rest of Canada. Following the concert, invited guests will join the performers at a private post-performance reception.

The Jenny Belzberg Theatre Grand Opening Weekend will feature a free concert specially curated for the community on Sunday, May 8. The afternoon concert and open house will be a great opportunity for the public to experience the newly revitalized space that is home to many Banff community concerts and events.

There are a limited number of Jenny Belzberg Theatre Grand Opening Weekend packages available for $1,000 per guest. The weekend packages include the Saturday evening reception, dinner, concert, post-performance reception, and Sunday community concert. If available, single public concert tickets will be available in spring 2022. Onsite accommodation is available.

Demand for tickets remains high, to enquire or to join the waiting list for the weekend package tickets, please feel free to contact Jennifer Knorr at for additional information.
