17th Ave Retail & Entertainment District

We are featured in Where.ca magazine for being a part of the “RedMile”, 17th Ave entertainment district. “Enjoy nightly Comedy shows at Yuk Yuk’s Comedy Club, and meals at one of the casino’s 3 eateries.”

Community & Giving

The Elbow River Casino operates within Alberta’s charitable gaming model as a traditional casino, which means that the company splits the net proceeds with charitable organizations. Charitable organizations are licensed by AGLC, and provide volunteers for each two-day event at the casino. Under statute, each charitable organization is obligated to reinvest their portion of casino proceeds back into the Calgary community through worthy projects, and beneficial services.

In addition to this support for local charitable organizations, employees at the Elbow River Casino support one another and their communities through several efforts, including such initiatives in the past as donations for the food bank and gifts for families at Christmas.

August 2014 – Elbow River Casino was nominated by Century Casino to participate in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. To see the Elbow River Casino staff do the Ice Bucket challenge, please follow the link or check out our Facebook page for the video. Ice Bucket Challenge Link
