About CISS

Chinatown Ice-Sculptures Showcase

In 2018, the Chinatown Business Improvement Area had a dream to light up Chinatown with Ice-Sculptures and carvings during Chinese Lunar New Years to celebrate what this unique community is all about. 

Our dream was realized in 2019 (the Year of the Pig) when we presented 12 unique carvings at the James Short Park for three weeks. In 2020 (the Year of the Rat), Calgary Chinatown BIA once again re-upped CISS by bringing another dozen ice-sculptures to various locations in the area.

Silver Dragon

Located in the heart of Chinatown, Silver Dragon Restaurant has served authentic Cantonese and Szechuan cuisine to Calgarians since 1966. Our Hong Kong-trained chefs prepare over 200 dishes. Order from the menu or stop a dim sum trolley at your table when you spot something that looks tasty (dim sum brunch daily). You will have to visit our family owned and operated restaurant more than once to experience it all!
