The Works Art & Design Festival
For 13 days every summer, Edmonton transforms into a massive celebration of art and design. As North America's largest free outdoor art & design festival, The Works features over 300 performances and events, and 50 exhibits at 30+ venues. The main site, Churchill Square, is home to 136 hours of free live music presented in the all-ages licensed outdoor patio, a Food Street, Art Market, art-making workshops for everyone, and much more.
Canada Day rocks with a special mix of live music and entertainment! Every day of the festival, there is an eclectic mix of folk, jazz, world, and new music at the Centre Stage for you to enjoy while you engage with the art, try your hand at creating, or just kick back in the summer sun.
Greater than the sum of its many parts, The Works is a time and place for everyone to discover, discuss and develop an appreciation for art & design. Get drawn in at The Works!
