July in Edmonton is for Fireworks!

  • There is so much to do on Canada Day, starting with family-friendly activities including a pancake breakfast at the Alberta Legislature, and many other activities, including the Great Divide Waterfall at the High Level Bridge, and of course, fireworks – see them all at this City of Edmonton list.
  • Help the Telus World of Science celebrate their 25th Anniversary on July 1, where they revert back to the price of admission charged in 1984.
  • The Silly Summer Parade kicks off a summer of flurry in Old Strathcona on July 1.
  • The Winspear Centre is hosting a free multicultural concert at 3pm on July 1.
  • The Freewill Shakespeare Festival continues for nearly the entire month, ending July 26. Titus Andronicus and Comedy of Errors are featured this year.
  • The Edmonton International Street Performers Festival picks up where The Works leaves off from July 3-12 in Churchill Square. Bring lots of change!
  • Breezy, lighthearted musicals are the focus of the Edmonton Film Society’s series for the summer. Check out movies on Monday nights at the Royal Alberta Museum for just $5, such as Carmen Jones on July 6.
  • The Whyte Avenue Art Walk on July 10-12 will feature over 230 artists in an “outdoor studio”. The Whyte Avenue Street Fair and Fashion Show will see two streets closed to traffic on July 12 from noon-5pm – I checked out the event last year.
