Events & Festivals

Albertans' love of the outdoors is equalled only by their love of a good gathering – indoors or out. Edmonton is often referred to as Canada’s Festival City – and no wonder, with more than 60 festivals annually including the second largest fringe festival in the world. The Calgary Stampede is a 10-day celebration of western culture known as the Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth. Winter is celebrated all over the province, from the ice sculptures of Banff Snow Days, to the snow-sports adventures of Jasper in January, to the urban parties throughout the season in Edmonton. Find a small town rodeo. Catch a multi-cultural festival with a global fireworks competition. Get the music going at local folk, blues, jazz and classical festivals as well as the largest country music festival on the continent.
