Founders' Plaza

Founders' Plaza

at Spruce Meadows

2015 is a very special year for Spruce Meadows.  It marks the 40th Anniversary for Spruce Meadows and the entire team is excitedly celebrating this important milestone.

Part of this celebration is the redevelopment of the Plaza Terraces into Founders' Plaza.  The new plaza will be located in the heart of Spruce Meadows – opposite the International Ring and behind the All Canada Ring where the Terraces formerly existed.

Mother Nature has cooperated with us throughout the construction phase and the progress has been incredible to witness.   Features of Founders' Plaza include beautiful flowerbeds, new hocker tents, a stunning tribute to the Spruce Meadows founders Ron and Marg Southern and more.  This area will also include new washroom facilities, which will be a welcome addition for our guests.

We would be most honoured if you would like to be part of this redevelopment and contribute to Founders' Plaza, the newest feature of Spruce Meadows.  If you are interested in donating, please reference the donation information below.  If you have any questions or require any additional information, please do not hesitate to contact us at or 403.974.4200.

Please stay tuned for more updates on the progress of the Founders' Plaza redevelopment.  We look forward to continuing to celebrate the 40th Anniversary with you and hope you are able to join us this year at Spruce Meadows.
