Summer Events Happening In Edmonton!

It’s finally over! After over 170 days of winter, summer has arrived…now that’s something to celebrate. We’ve curated a fantastic list of a few of our favourite Edmonton events, festivals, and activities for the whole crew.

 

K-Days

Every year, Edmontonians look forward to our annual carnival, concert series, and RODEO! This year, some of our favourite summer memories will be made between July 20-29.  I don’t know about you, but I fully intend on stuffing my face with some exciting new local delicacies, deep fried everything, and of course….mini doughnuts! Naturally, we will be getting the RAD Pass (Ride-All-Day) and most likely regretting a few of the mini doughnuts that I ate in line!

Be sure to check out the New Food Contest happening on July 20 from noon-2pm. Check out some of the most innovative & delicious new delicacies coming to K-Days this year.

If it gets too hot outside, you can step inside for your Grand Shopping Experience, with over 350 exhibits for you to explore. It’s hard not to spend too much money on some of these unique & interesting items for sale! You can also watch a Pow Wow competition, explore agriculture, and take the kids to Kid Town for some hands-on activities. 

Here in Edmonton, we love our live music. This year we get to enjoy free (yes FREE) concerts from performers like Billy Talent, The Beach Boys, Walk Off The Earth, Cheap Trick, Ice Cube, Mariana's Trench, Lil Jon, The Rural Alberta Advantage, and the Village People (Y-M-C-A…now you have this stuck in your head!). Every night, you are invited to watch the fireworks as they light up the sky in an impressive display of colors. 

Be sure to watch our Facebook & Instagram page for some exciting news leading up to the big days!

Sustainival

Sustainival is the world's first green carnival and will be held at the Edmonton Expo Centre from June 7-10. This is a free event that is powered entirely by renewable energy. Since no carnival is complete without some of your favorite rides, you’ll find a Carousel, Ferris Wheel, Zipper, fun houses, Tilt-a-Whirl, and a Super Shot with ride coupons available for purchase at the event.

 

Obsessed with sustainable learning and shows like The Amazing Race? Be sure to participate in the Green Beast Eco Challenge and compete for some pretty awesome prizes.

Sustainavle isn’t all just fun, games, and food. It also provides a public education platform on how we as a community can support and utilize sustainable technologies.

We’re excited to check out this fun, exciting new festival this June! For more information, check out their website!

 

World Triathalon Series Edmonton

2018 marks Crosstown Chrysler Jeep Dodge’s second year of support for the World Triathalon Series this July 27-28 at Hawrelak Park. Note that there is no parking on site but there will be shuttles available and public bike racks located in the park. The series kicks off Friday morning at 10:15am with the Paratriathalon Lounge Open. Friday evening, keep an eye out for an outdoor party complete with food vendors, beer gardens, kids events and more!

There are many places to watch the events at Hawrelak Park such as the Grandstands, spots around the loops, & the Beer Garden. However, you’ll find us cheering on Canadian athletes, at the Canada Corner Cheer Party at the top of Emily Murphy hill! With cheer kits, food trucks, kids activities & Virgin Radio on site, it’s bound to be an absolute blast for the whole family!
