It looks like summer is here to stay, and that means it’s time for my listing of summer festivals & events, 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.
What the Truck?! by @DaveFeltham
Here’s my list of 50+ festivals and events you can look forward to this summer in and around Edmonton!
You can check out a calendar view of festivals here or you can download the iCal feed for your own apps.
FIFA Women’s World Cup Canada 2015
Edmonton is always a great place for summer sports, but this year is special. Edmonton is one of the official host cities for the FIFA Women’s World Cup Canada 2015. We’ll host 11 matches this summer from June 6 through July 5, including the kickoff match between Canada and China. There’s a Team Canada Fan March taking place before the game too, from Borden Park to Commonwealth Stadium. In addition to the group matches, we’re hosting two Round of 16 matches, one quarter-final match, one semi-final match, and the third place match. You can see all of the matches on ShareEdmonton.
The City of Edmonton will be showing some of the games on a huge outdoor screen in Centennial Plaza (behind the Stanley Milner Library downtown). Ticket prices range from $20 to $115 and include bus, LRT, or park & ride service to and from the game. There are a few contests you can enter too. For example, Edmonton Tourism is giving away 60 tickets.
Happy Summer in Edmonton
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.

I did not see Night Market Edmonton on your list! Can we include it? Starts May 22-Aug 28 Fridays 7-11pm! Cheers.
Hi! I didn’t include the markets in the list, because they are pretty regular and there’s a lot of them! But maybe I’ll add a second table to the post with markets and other recurring summer events. Thanks 🙂
Great! I’m starting to love Edmonton a lot more than Toronto! Thanks for sharing this list 🙂
