June 30-July 9
Edmonton comes alive in the summer, and Old Strathcona is at the heart of it all. You’ll find unique festivals, delicious food and once-in-a-lifetime fun around every corner.
Start your adventure and celebrate the Historical Festival and Doors Open (July 1-8) by hitching a ride on the High Level Bridge Streetcar. Its destination is the epicentre of Old Strathcona, which is right where you'll find all the action. Bring your crew over to Boardwalk Sand On Whyte (June 30-July 9) for a close-up look at intricate, handmade sand carvings that won't get washed away by the tide. Or peruse through blocks lined with local artists at the Whyte Avenue Art Walk (July 7-9) and pick up a piece of one-of-a-kind art to add to your collection. Maybe you want to rock out for three amazing days in the sun at the Blues on Whyte Block Party (June 30-July2). Whatever you fancy, you'll find it here.
