Another weekend come and gone, Edmonton! That classic June weather doesn’t look like it’ll let up this week, but we’ve got a few ways to deal with it. Concerts, a trip to the museum, a little bit of food… and of course, even getting outside if you’re feeling prepared.

Here are the 10 best things to do in Edmonton this week.


What is sure to be two(!!) of the most-talked about concerts for all of 2022 kicks off on Friday. Dean Brody’s first stadium show sold out, so he announced another, and that sold out too! The good news? It brought resale prices wayyy down.

When: Friday, June 24th
Where: 11000 Stadium Road
Cost: $98+


Garth ain’t the only guy in town! If you’re craving something a little more, uh, intense, then we suggest checking out Destructo at Union Hall.

When: Friday, June 24th
Where: 6240 99 Street NW
Cost: $35 for GA


After a 3-year hiatus (yes, even before the pandemic), Edmonton is finally going to see another Pride Fest this week! A massive new festival will be taking over Churchill Square in the heart of the city, for two straight days of music, entertainment, food, and fun!

When: Starts Friday, June 24th
Where: Sir Winston Churchill Square

Broadway is coming to Edmonton, and it’s bringing one of the most acclaimed contemporary plays with it. Take a musical trip down memory lane with this pseudo-biography of Alexander Hamilton, one of the founding fathers of America.

When: Shows start Tuesday, June 21st
Where: 11455 87 Avenue
Cost: $84+

Two new exhibitions have arrived at the AGA! One sheds light on Haiti’s relationship to the world, while the other focuses on J’ouvert, a Trinidadian carnival dating back to the 18th century. Not exactly simple enough for kids to understand, so great as a more adult-oriented outing.

When: Open Wednesday to Sunday
Where: 2 Sir Winston Churchill Square
Cost: $14


After over a year of waiting, this acclaimed immersive art exhibit has finally landed in the city! 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.
