Festivals Events & Festivals

In Alberta, things get festive fast. The reasons why, well, there’s a lot of them. Maybe it’s the 17 hours of daylight in the summer. Maybe it’s the longing to be around people who aren’t made of snow. Either way, you’ll see: the party goes year-round. • Fun city: With more than 60 festivals a year, Edmonton is Alberta’s festival capital. That means there’s a good chance you’ll be here just in time to celebrate something awesome. • Limitless: If you can eat it, dance to it or bask in it, Alberta’s got a festival for it.
