Get ready for an action-packed Labour Day weekend in Alberta’s Capital City!

The City

If you are looking for an unforgettable and original experience, you’ve come to the right place! We invite you to Explore Edmonton.
Why is Edmonton different? Maybe it’s our northern home, where for years we’ve learned to make our own fun. Perhaps it’s the people who have always been unusually keen to try, and build, something new. From close encounters with free roaming bison to surfing indoors to taking your taste buds on a journey to some of the hottest craft beer taprooms, hyper-local bistros and indie bakeries in Canada, you’ll want to keep exploring. And we want you to be a part of it.
When you’re ready to put your adventure on pause for the evening, Edmonton has the best hotels and accommodations to rest your head. We want to help make your time here cherished, with memories that will make you want to come back often. Don’t miss some of the other exciting festivals, events, things to do and dining options while you’re here.
