YOU BELONG at the HoopWest Virtual Summit!

October 16 & 17 on Twitch and Zoom


Workshops • Performances • Vendor Showcase • Panel Discussions • Surprises (who doesn’t love surprises!)


Postponing HoopWest 4 to 2021 was a tough decision but it was the right one. While a virtual event can never replace the vibes we create when we throw down together in that big beautiful ballroom in Calgary, we are working hard behind the screens to bring some of that HoopWest magic to you in a different way this year!

This event is FREE to attend and we will be accepting donations throughout the event. All proceeds from the HoopWest Virtual Summit will benefit the Stardale Women’s Group, an organization that empowers Indigenous girls through life skills and literacy programming. All teachers, performers and organizers are donating their time to make this event happen.



We are so excited to welcome you into the digital space we’re creating to celebrate our community, inspire and be inspired, to laugh! and to simply connect at a time when we need it most.
