Your Guide to Summer Festivals & Events in Edmonton!

For the 2016 edition, click here!

For the last couple of years I have posted a list of all the summer festivals happening here in Edmonton. It’s a lot of work to pull together, but I think the list is quite handy so I have done it once again. Powered by ShareEdmonton, here is a list of the festivals, parades, and a few other notable events you can look forward to over the next few months. Click on the title of a festival to visit its website, click on the ShareEdmonton logo to see the event listing there, and click on the calendar icon to open up an iCal for the festival’s dates.

You can see a listing of all the festivals here, and a calendar view here. You can also add all of the festivals to your calendar with this iCal feed.

If you know of a festival that I have missed, please let me know and I’ll add it. There are some festivals that have happened in previous years such as Rock the Square and Cariwest that will likely happen again, but they don’t have websites with information to confirm that. I’m sure there will also be events that get announced closer to the date (such as additional What the Truck?! events throughout the summer).

Be sure to check out ShareEdmonton for even more upcoming events – there are hundreds of additional listings such as Edmonton Eskimo games, farmers markets, and many more.

Happy summer!
