After closing its doors last fall in an effort to mitigate the effects of COVID-19, Calgary’s Dickens Pub–a hub for many types of artistic events from live music to voguing and drag–recently announced that it will be reopening on September 2.
Since going on hiatus in November 2020, Dickens owner Chris Hewitt found a great deal of success on Twitch with a number of music-related livestream events. Now that things are returning to relative normalcy, the popular 9th Avenue institution will reclaim its status as one of the city’s cultural landmarks for live music, dance parties, drag performances, game nights, and more.
Further information regarding what to expect will be revealed in the weeks leading up to its official reopening on September 2. Keep an eye on Dickens’ Instagram page for up-to-date announcements.
