Local Drop Magazine is a young, grassroots, community-focused magazine that shines a spotlight on local musicians, artists, businesses, entrepreneurs and more. We believe that for a community to stand strong, it must start locally. Local Drop was established in 2016 and is currently distributed to more than 200 shops and businesses in Calgary.


As we continue to grow, we are looking for more volunteer writers and photographers to join the team.
