Anchored by the funky, bohemian spirit of Whyte Avenue, historic buildings blend with youthful exuberance to make Old Strathcona one of Edmonton’s trendiest neighbourhoods. The city's celebrated arts and cultural community makes its home here, as does a plethora of unique local boutiques, one-of-a-kind art galleries and music shops, and trendy restaurants and cafés.

Find the perfect outfit at a chic boutique, sip and socialize on a summer patio and enjoy world-class festivals, entertainment, and live music. Explore the outdoor art, treat yourself in one of the many spas and salons, familiarize yourself with the local history and connect with nature in Dr. Wilbert McIntyre Park.
