Things To Do

8 things to do in Edmonton this week (January 13-17)

Via Hockey Wilderness

Brr! This week is looking pretty dang gross. But hey, when has that ever stopped us from providing you with the best things to do in Edmonton? Never. And if it does, we want you to email us your frustration. Hold us to a high standard, dear reader!

Anyway, here are 8 things to do in Edmonton this week.

Banff Mountain Film Festival

With 8 shows spread over two programs, this is the perfect way to get mentally prepared for the golden hour of ski season. Ice climbing, arctic expeditions, nordic skating… this film fest is leaving no stone unturned.

When: Showtimes throughout the week
Where: Metro Cinema, 8712 109 Street NW
Cost: $22

Oilers vs. Predators

We’re stressing out Ticketmaster with all these events we’re clicking on. Anyway, the Oilers face off against the Predators this week. The added bonus? Certain tickets get to access to the biggest Oilers photo op of the year the next day!

When: Tuesday, January 14
Where: Rogers Place, 10220 104 Ave NW
Cost: $120 and up

The Strumbellas

The Strumbellas have dominated alternative radio stations worldwide, with songs like “Sprits” and “We Don’t Know,” off their newest album Hope. Catch them on their latest tour and enjoy some upbeat music to battle the cold weather.

When: Wednesday, January 15
Where: Northern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium, 11455 87 Ave NW
Cost: $36.25 and up

Mesmerica 360 Edmonton

In a nutshell, mesmerica is about hang drums and fractals. Luckily, the musician, James Hood, is Grammy-nominated. Plus, you get to see the visuals play out in the Zeidler Dome. It’s the perfect ‘out-there’ option this week!

When: Friday, January 17
Where: Telus World of Science, 11211 142 St NW
Cost: $42

Edmonton Motorcycle Show

Why look at snow when you can look at road hogs and fantasize about driving to New Mexico? We’re half interested in this show, half using it as an excuse to use “road hogs.” Any motorcycle enthusiast needs to check it out, though.

When: Starts Friday, January 17
Where: Edmonton Expo Centre, 7515 118 Ave NW
Cost: $15

Julius Caesar

Put on as part of the Winter Shakespeare Festival, this tale is a great way to forget about winter for a few hours. Instead, learn about how ruthless ancient Rome was, courtesy of the Bard himself!

When: Showtimes throughout the week
Where: 10037 84 Avenue Northwest
Cost: $25

Cost of Living

If you’re not feeling Shakespeare, then how about contemporary theatre? This is the Canadian premier of the Pulitzer-prize winning show. The subject? Exploring the space where abled and disabled bodies meet, told through two separate narratives. Neat!

When: Showtimes throughout the week
Where: Citadel Theatre, 9828 101 A Avenue
Cost: $25 and up

Winter Day Activities

We sensed that these next few weeks were going to be pretty bad, and we prepared accordingly. Check out our guide to the best winter activities you can get up to in Edmonton! From culture to craziness, we’ve got it all.

When: Whenever!
Where: Venues around the city
Cost: Varies per activity

We’ve never seen a Pulitzer-prize winning play before, so Cost of Living is number 1 on our list of things to do this week. How about you, Edmonton? What are you feeling?
