Fort Edmonton Park

Costumed interpreters demonstrate the daily lives of Edmontonians from each time period. Stop by the Capitol Theatre to see what's playing, a live performance, cinema classics or even a "4D" short film. Before returning to modern times, enjoy an old-school carnival ride in the midway.

New to the park is the immersive Indigenous Peoples Experience. This is your chance to explore life through the diversity of First Nations' and Métis Peoples' histories and perspectives. The stories, music, artwork, and text in the experience come from local Indigenous perspectives and voices, gathered through engagement with local Indigenous communities and research.
