Well, another summer weekend has come and gone, Edmonton… Luckily, we’ve got a serious amount of fun to look forward to this week. Sports, festivals, concerts… you know, everything you could ask for when it comes to some post-work activities.
Here are the best things to do in Edmonton this week.
‘Experimental Pop’ is a good way to sum up this larger-than-life and very energetic band. If you just want to dance your heart out this week, then this is our top pick.
When: Tuesday, August 16th
Where: 6240 99 Street NW
Meanwhile, a Canada music icon is coming to the city as well! They’ve actually just released a new album (called ‘Formentera’), so you can expect some new songs among their most popular hits!
When: Wednesday, August 17th
Where: 9797 Jasper Avenue
Next up for (kinda) festivals, we’ve got the Together Again Concert Series! While the entire weekend is filled with big names, there’s no denying that Albertan country star Paul Brandt might be the best of them.
When: Friday, August 19th
Where: Edmonton Exhibition Lands
ART GALLERY OF ALBERTA
Member’s Week is coming to the AGA! Existing members get to see some serious perks, like free admission for a friend, discounts at the gift shop, and free desserts (with purchase) at May. Yet to join? Membership will be 20% off as well!
When: Starts Wednesday, August 17th
Where: 2 Sir Winston Churchill Square
Speaking of artsy stuff… Enjoy the works of one of the world’s best painters, in a level of detail that rivals actually, you know, booking a flight to France to see them in person.

Cost: $34.95+ for GA
