Segway Tours with River Valley Adventure Co.
Zipping around Edmonton’s beautiful river valley on a Segway is must-do this spring. Chris and the River Valley Adventure Co. team are gearing up for the warmer months by taking off those winter tires! It’s the perfect time to head out on an adventure with some friends and practice your Segway moves while spring is in the air.
John Mayer 'In Search of Everything' Tour
Instead of singing "your body is a wonderlaaaaaand!" alone in your car this spring, hear your favourite hits live at Rogers Place. That's right, this Grammy Award winning singer/songwriter is heading to Edmonton in April. You'll be regaled with new music from his album "The Search for Everything" as well as close-to-your-heart classics like "Daughters" and "No Such Thing".
City Market Downtown
City Market Downtown won't be under City Hall’s glass pyramid for long, soon they'll pick up and venture out to the 4th Street Promenade for warmer sunny days. Whether you’re a city market veteran or have yet to experience all of the market’s glory, make sure to get in one last (or first) visit while it’s still indoors.
April showers bring, well, flowers! Check out the Orchid Fair at The Enjoy Centre from April 7-9. There’s something for every level of green-thumb; from beginner plants to the rare and exotic. Or come down to the Muttart for Concerts at the Conservatory and enjoy the melodies of local artists while you take in gorgeous greenery on April 20. During intermission, take a guided tour led by a knowledgeable Muttart Conservatory Interpreter!
