Welcome to BarCraft Calgary! This will be the place to get all the information you'll need on knowing when and where Calgary's Starcraft community will be hosting its next BarCraft.
What is a Barcraft? A Barcraft is an event held in a local pub or bar concurrent with a major Starcraft 2 championship or event in which the pub/bar stream the Starcraft matches on their TV's rather than the usual conventional sports such as Football or Hockey. Barcraft was born from a desire to see E-sports, in this case professional Starcraft, become more mainstream in North America. To do this Starcraft fans began organizing Barcrafts over various social media sites such as Facebook and Reddit in order to bring the game into the public eye. Our mission is to strengthen and grow the existing E-sports community in Calgary, through organizing and running epic events.
