Graduations

The COVID-19 pandemic has once again forced Calgary’s Public and Catholic school boards to cancel typical high school graduation ceremonies, making 2021 the second year Calgary students won’t be able to experience a traditional celebration.

We understand the importance and meaningful moment graduation ceremonies provide staff, students, and their loved ones. We feel it is important to still offer this experience and in turn have developed a unique alternative to celebrate while also staying safe!

The Grey Eagle Drive In is conveniently located beside the Grey Eagle Resort & Casino. The 206 car capacity open lot will be set ready for you with a covered stage decorated for your graduation, ambient lighting, screens and sound! The stage overlooks the beautiful rocky mountains providing a breathtaking landscape to host your schools 2021 graduation. If you prefer a more spacious indoor experience, consider booking a room at the resort and watch the graduation from the comfort of your own room!
