About Vigo Calgary

At the heart of Vigo is a mission to connect Calgarians to the local businesses, art and culture that create the vibrancy of this city.

After realizing how many incredible and unique businesses were hidden in Calgary, founders Cass Higgs and Emily Knight set out to create a way for people to discover new local experiences without having to search through the noise that exists online. By curating a small seasonal list of Calgary experiences, focusing on the arts, culture, and local businesses, Vigo makes it easy to continuously try new things every season.

Vigo wants to give local businesses the ability to connect with new customers in an authentic way. Even in a digital age, the discovery of new businesses still happens through in-person word of mouth. For a city like Calgary, where the community is so close-knit, the ability to harness word of mouth is even more crucial for small businesses.
