Summer Festivals in Edmonton

May 19, 2024

There's no doubt about it, Edmonton's summer season is legendary. With a festival going on almost every day from mid-June through early September, there's no shortage of awe-inspiring things to see and do. Alberta's capital is the perfect place to soak up 17 hours of sunshine while festival hopping — we're talking music festivals, theatre festivals, culinary festivals, art & design extravaganzas, and so much more.

Now is the time to mark your calendars, book your time off, and start planning for the best summer ever. They call us Canada's Festival City for a reason — come see for yourself!
