Spruce Meadows is a premier venue for sports and entertainment in Calgary, Alberta. This picturesque complex has captivated the worldwide audience of the sport of show jumping, and now, Canadian Premier League soccer.
Grow for good with us!
ATCO is partnering with Spruce Meadows on something special, weaving Spruce Meadows, sustainability, volunteerism and generosity for Calgary’s vulnerable seniors and veterans into one great new initiative – the ATCO Giving Gardens at Spruce Meadows.
This spring, we’ll plant 30 garden beds so we can grow and learn together – safely – all summer long. In the fall, our talented Blue Flame Kitchen chefs will use our harvest to feed vulnerable seniors and veterans in Calgary.
We’re keeping sustainability top of mind, using reclaimed lumber from ATCO’s Structures division that otherwise would have ended up in the landfill for 10 of the garden beds. We’re repurposing old milk crates and horse troughs for the 20 other garden beds, too!
The ATCO Giving Gardens at Spruce Meadows will open to the public in the Spring of 2022, as the grounds are still closed to the public due to COVID-19.
Kickin’ In the Kitchen with BFK and Cavalry FC

Be inspired as Cavalry FC midfielders Elliot Simmons (#15) and Joe Di Chiara (#14), and forward Ahinga Selemani (#19) take on Chef Paul of the Blue Flame Kitchen in a friendly culinary battle that really brings the heat!
The event was part of the AllState Soccer Show, which took place virtually on Sunday, May 30.
ATCO's Spruce Meadows Mobile Experience
If you're like us, we were sorely missing the beauty, sights and smells of world-class sport and entertainment venue, Spruce Meadows, after COVID-19 pandemic restrictions led them to cancel their 2020 Tournament season, so we decided to do something exciting and bring the experience to five lucky contest winners nominated by their peers.
The Choy, Desjardins, Black, Sesay, Barker and Bischke families were selected to experience “ATCO’s Spruce Meadows Mobile Experience”, bringing the sights, smells and tastes of Spruce Meadows right to their doorstep.
As a proud partner of Spruce Meadows, ATCO was excited to bring this experience to Calgarians.

Drive Thru Grad 2020
Drive Thru Grad 2020 was created when a local Calgary events company, a group of parents, and sponsors like ATCO, joined forces to create a memorable experience for high school grads whose graduation ceremonies were cancelled due to COVID-19 pandemic restrictions. The goal was to provide graduates to walk across stage and celebrate with their classmates at a safe social distance.
“On behalf of all of us at ATCO, we want to send our warmest wishes and congratulations to the graduating class of 2020. We are honored to play a small role in your big day and wish you all the best in your future endeavors!”
Nancy Southern, Chair and CEO, ATCO Ltd.
