We’re happy to report that Edmonton is getting back to its weird self again. Frankly, we were struggling a little bit to find wacky, weird events in Edmonton over the holidays. But now, hoo boy, we have to cut down our list! That’s the Edmonton that we like to see- one where the only limit is our imagination.

Here are the best weird events happening in Edmonton this week.

Oilers Photo Day

Not going to lie, this is a great photo op for those looking to revamp their dating profiles. Get access to practically every important part of Rogers Place, and the opportunity to snag some photos with players while you’re there! No McDavid or Draisatl, before you ask.

When: Friday, January 17
Where: Waldorf Independent School of Edmonton, 7211 96a Avenue NW

Pride and Prejudice Staycation

The BBC miniseries marathon is weird in and of itself, but it’s actually already sold out. So, your other option is dropping some serious cash and turning it into a ‘staycation’ this weekend. Bonus points if you get early 19th century garments to wear.
