The POW! Parade of Wonders is an annual cosplay parade celebrating pop culture and creativity in Calgary’s downtown. It’s free to participate but there is a catch: to walk in the parade you must be decked out in cosplay (costume-play). Expo goers and downtown office workers alike get involved and join in on the fun and witness this unique event. The POW! Parade of Wonders takes place each year during the world-renowned Calgary Comic & Entertainment Expo (April 28-May 1, 2016 at Stampede Park). This year, the parade will take place on Friday, April 29 starting at Eau Claire Market’s public plaza.
The 2015 POW! Parade of Wonders was the biggest yet! Over 1,800 cosplayers paraded through the streets of Downtown Calgary for over 5,000 spectators. You don’t want to miss out on this one-of-a-kind celebration! Click HERE to register!
