Our event rooms are perfect for your next function! Whether it’s a team-building experience, executive dinner, or a corporate presentation, (to name a few) our semi-private and private Event Rooms can accommodate numerous small to medium-sized event formats.
Treat your guests to the ultimate hat shopping experience, an authentic Smithbilt Hats corporate hat event. Inclusive and collaborative, social and engaging, it’s a unique opportunity to unite your team through the hat-buying process of sizing, selecting, shaping, and socializing. During your event, you’ll learn about the rich history of Smithbilt (we’ve been part of the Calgary community for over 103 years!) and the way we fashion Smithbilt hats using time-honoured processes and tools. Smithbilt still uses all the original hat-building equipment that founded the company in 1919. Guests leave the event wearing their very own custom-styled, one-of-a-kind Smithbilt Hats original design. We look forward to working with you to customize your event with catering and beverage options.

An iconic symbol of Calgary’s international reputation for unrivalled hospitality and our passion to be the Ultimate Hosts, Calgary’s identification with the white hat began when local Calgary hat maker Morris Shumiatcher of Smithbilt Hats introduced the first white cowboy hat in 1946. Representatives of Calgary wore the white hats while cheering Calgary’s football team, the Calgary Stampeders, in the 1948 Grey Cup – Canada’s national football championship. Since 1950, Calgary has been proudly presenting the white cowboy hats to visitors, dignitaries, and guests. When you are presented a white hat, it means you came to Calgary as a visitor; however, you are leaving as a friend. The ceremony involves presenting participants (delegates, visiting guest speakers, VIPs) with a white hat, followed by repeating the traditional Calgary white hat oath.
