An Instagram Pop-Up With 6 Colourful Spaces Just Opened In Calgary (PHOTOS)

This photoshoot playground is totally free to explore.

If you’re looking to level-up your Insta game then we have just the thing for you. A colourful new space just opened in YYC and it's totally free to visit. The Calgary Instagram pop-up installation features six unique spaces for taking the perfect photoshoot. 

Instagram pop-up events are crazy popular. Last month, a similar event with 24 unique rooms opened in Vancouver and it was a hit. Earlier this year, Toronto held a pop-up event where you could take photos in a fake private jet.

Similar to the CHROMA pop-up at Edmonton's Kingway Mall this holiday season, Southcentre Mall has created an Instagram playground of its own. 

This installation doesn’t need to be admired from afar. You can totally immerse yourself in it. The Set YYC is now open and features multiple fun backdrops that you can explore and use as your own personal set.

These rooms are perfect for a photoshoot or selfies with your friends.

The purpose of these rooms for people to “find inspiration for creating magical holiday photos.”

The exhibit is now open to the public until New Year's Eve. So if you’re looking for a spot to take some cute holiday outfit photos, now is your chance. 

You can visit The Set anytime during mall hours. However, if you are looking to avoid the hectic crowds, you can stop by up to two hours prior to the mall's opening hours. So you can get your photoshoot done and dusted before the shoppers arrive.  

Also, if you use the #TheSetYYC in your Instagram photos, you're automatically entered to win a $200 gift card to the mall. 

If you want to add even more colour to your IG grid, there are tons of unique spots around Calgary to take beautiful photos.
