Here’s my listing of summer festivals & events for 2014, powered by ShareEdmonton. Below you’ll find dozens of events with a website, dates, and links to social media for each. You’ll also find a link to the event at ShareEdmonton and a link to an iCal for the event. I hope you find this listing as useful as I do.
Unfortunately I wasn’t able to get this post completed before all of these events started, so a few have already come and gone. I’ve left them in here though – this’ll be a handy starting point for next year!
You can check out a calendar view of festivals here or you can download the iCal feed for your own apps. There are some festivals that have happened in previous years that don’t seem to be happening this year (such as Rubaboo and Open Sky Music Festival) so I have left them out for now.
This year I wanted to highlight the many special sports events that are happening in Edmonton, in addition to Eskimos and FC Edmonton games. It’s an exciting time for track, basketball, and of course, soccer!
|Edmonton Grads International Classic||June 26-28|
|U15 & U17 National Basketball Championships||July 25-30|
|FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup Canada||August 5-16|
|Edmonton Marathon||August 23-24|
|World Triathlon Grand Final||August 26 – September 1|
|Canada 55+ Games||August 27-30|
|Tour of Alberta||September 5-7|
There are of course many more events listed in the ShareEdmonton calendar, so check it out! Have I missed something that should be included? Let me know in the comments and I’ll add it.
