Drive Thru Grad 2020

Congratulations to the Calgary Graduating Class of 2020! ATCO was proud to be the Main Stage Sponsor at this unique event, held at Spruce Meadows and Calgary Stampede from June 15-26, 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 June 15, Drive Thru Grad 2020’s first group of graduates walked across the stage to celebrate in front of a sea of honking cars full of friends and family. Similar to a car wash, vehicles first drove up to photo stations for some fun graduation shots, then walked across a decorated graduation stage to celebrate their moment. Friends and family took photos and video to commemorate and honked their horns of support from the comfort of their vehicles. Students then parked to watch the rest of their classmates graduate. 

ATCO was a supporter at both venues, and the Main Stage sponsor at the Spruce Meadows location from June 23-26. This event was a great opportunity for us to help out the Calgary youth in these uncertain times. “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.
