By Becca Willson

Ahh, January. Not only is it time to start thinking “new year, new you”, it’s also “new decade, new to-do list”! That’s right, 2020 brings us a fresh opportunity to really take hold of our New Year’s resolutions and make the changes we’ve been meaning to make. Some of those changes should definitely include checking out the Edmonton offerings that we always see on each other’s Instagram feeds, but maybe have never attended in person. Here’s a guide to make sure the first month of the new decade is full of memory-making and winter fun!

Winterruption is our city's newest music festival, featuring big-name headliners like GZA along with smaller names and popular local talent.
