History of the Jubilee

SAIT Southern Alberta Institute of Technology CalgaryOriginally a gift to Albertans by the provincial government, the Southern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium began construction in 1955 to commemorate the province’s 50th birthday.

Since it’s inauguration it has experienced multiple renovations to keep up with a modern society while continuing to host the quality stand up comedians, bands and orchestras, Broadway shows, theatre productions, awards ceremonies and festivals it has become known for.

One of the largest of these renovations occurred in 2005 as a part of the celebration of the centennial birthday for Alberta. The Jubilee underwent a complete makeover with an end cost of $91 million!

Today, the main theatre can hold a bit more than 2,500 people across its three levels and is a state of the art venue created to deliver an exceptional entertainment experience.
