Guide to Edmonton

Edmonton is the northernmost city in North America which makes for a pretty unique experience. We know how to entertain ourselves and grind through long winter nights. Catch us dancing in the River valley at winter festivals in -30 degree weather, embracing the festivities. On the other hand, we appreciate our long summer days with a type of zealousness you can only find here. We embrace creatives and push the boundaries in our art scene. There is always something fun to do here and you never have to look far!

Rogers Place - 10220 104 Avenue
Home to the Edmonton Oilers and also one of Edmonton’s largest concert venues Rogers Place hosts some of the biggest names in music. Restaurants, luxury accommodations and a casino are also featured.

West Edmonton Mall - 8882 170 Street
An essential Edmonton experience. The mall spans 48 city blocks, what can’t you do here?

It’s all possible at the mall!

Art Gallery of Alberta - 2 Sir Winston Churchill Square
Designed by Randall Stout the Art Gallery of Alberta is a stunning piece of architecture to observe in itself. Step inside and spend your day getting lost in over 6,000 works of art. With an elegant restaurant on site and lots of programs geared towards families, there is something for everyone here.

Royal Alberta Musem - 9810 103A Avenue
The largest museum in western Canada. It is a museum of human and natural history. There are exhibits that appeal to the whole family. Come while away an afternoon and leave with a little bit more knowledge than when you arrived.

The Citadel Theatre  - 9828 101A Avenue
The Citadel Theatre is a major theatre, with multiple stages that showcase Canadian and International productions. Seeing their production of A Christmas Carol each year is a tradition for many. If theatre is not your thing they also host more casual comedy, cabaret and concert events.

Edmonton River Valley
Take a ride on the funicular from our downtown core simply to observe the vastness of our city's parks. Or if you are more adventurous try exploring 160km worth of multi-use trails. Bike, walk, scoot, canoe, or ski, all are welcome in the river valley. Plan ahead, pack a picnic and host a fire with friends in one of Edmonton’s parks, nature awaits!
