Edmonton Northern Alberta

Alberta’s capital city is always celebrating something, from arts and culture to food and wine, dragon boats, winter and even accordions. You have more than 60 festivals to choose from, year round. Plan to spend the better part of a day – or longer – at West Edmonton Mall, which is the largest shopping and entertainment complex in North America and the size of a small city. Explore Edmonton’s museums and historic sites. Come to the famous farmers’ market in the Old Strathcona and visit with local vendors. Explore the galleries and shops, find a funky restaurant and stick around for the night life – live theatre, music and dancing.
