HOOPWEST is a three-day hoop event held in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. 

Hoopers from all over Canada (and beyond!) gather for three days dedicated to developing skills, inspiring movement and connecting with a diverse and inclusive community of artists, enthusiasts, teachers and students.

Hoopers of all skill levels are welcome!

Each year, HoopWest offers quality hoop instruction from local, regional and international instructors,

as well as yoga, dance, and circus workshops.

The 4th annual HoopWest has been postponed to October 2021.



Applications for instructors open in January 2021. Lineup announced April 2021. Final schedule goes live in October 2021. The workshop schedule is carefully curated to provide a fun and challenging weekend for hoopers of all skill levels. Experienced teachers will inspire and elevate your practice with creative ideas and top notch instruction.

  • Tickets are non-refundable. You may re-sell your ticket at any time prior to the first day of the event; please contact us to update ticket holder details: info@hoopwest.ca


Meals are not provided with your HoopWest pass, and we recommend that you pack a healthy lunch and snacks to keep your motor running throughout each day. The venue is beautiful but slightly remote in terms of nearby local restaurants, so it is not recommended that you plan to leave the site during lunch breaks, but rather plan to relax and enjoy a bagged lunch on the patio or on the banks of the river.
