We’ve got a real rollercoaster of weather to look forward to Edmonton, complete with highs, lows, and maybe even a little rain to sing in. But, no matter what, one thing we know for sure is that it’s shaping up to be a good one! And we’ve got all the options to make it so.

Here are the best things to do in Edmonton this weekend.


Alberta Ballet is back with a bang and what better performance to kick things off with than the world premiere of Christopher Anderson’s Swan Lake, a story of romance, sorcery and triumph. For tickets check out the link above and enjoy!

For those craving something even more refined, the ESO has got you covered. The renowned orchestra will be covering Mozart (mixed with some trumpet) this week. Great if paired with a treat yourself dinner before or after.

The Elks have their final home game of the regular season this week. They are, sadly, more or less out of playoffs contention, but we still think this is a great option for the sports fans out there. Remember, you’re only as good as the last game you play!

Where: 11000 Stadium Road
Cost: $35+

It’s nice to know that Edmonton has its own slice of summer, thanks to the Muttart Conservatory. This indoor botanical garden is the perfect place to unwind after a long day, or relax with a friend during the weekend. Either way, it’s sure to get more and more popular as temperatures drop.
