Here are 8 things to do in Edmonton this weekend.

Test your knowledge of The Office over brunch

If there’s one thing we’ve learned having Tinder on our phones, it’s that literally, everybody loves The Office. And dogs. Well, now you can challenge that person you’re talking with to see if they really know their stuff. Perfect brunch date idea.

When: Saturday, April 27 at 10 AM
Where: Hudson’s at 10141 109 Street
Tickets: $8 per person, get them here

Attend a tiki party at the waterpark

Now, this sounds like a lot of fun. The Rec Room will be taking over the waterpark at West Ed for an 18+ night of tiki fun. Live DJs, a hula contest, and drinks. Our kind of party, really.

When: Saturday, April 27 at 7:30 PM
Where: World Waterpark
Tickets: $20, get them on their Facebook page

Glow bright like a diamond

Boy, Saturday has got a lot of fun stuff going on. The Glow Party at the Ranch Roadhouse will definitely brighten up your weekend. Glowsticks, clothing and even body paint are provided.

Where: The Ranch Roadhouse
Tickets: $15 til tomorrow, then $20 day of, get them here

Go to a crazy electronic concert

Snails is barely classified as dubstep, and actually uses the term ‘vomitstep’, so heads up on that. But, he’s collaborated with artists like Jack Ü and Flux Pavilion, and performed at EDC and Ultra.

When: Saturday, April 27 at 9 PM
Where: Union Hall
Tickets: $31.63, get them here

Buy some vintage and collectible stuff

What kind of vintage? Beats us, but we are constantly on the hunt for weird homeware and accessories, so it’s worth it no matter what. Hosted in a bar too, so grab a beer and browse around.

When: Sunday, April 28, 2PM-6PM
Where: The Black Dog Freehouse
Cost: Free to attend!

Find out why rocks rock

The Edmonton Gem Show is your chance to buy some really neat rocks. Why would you buy rocks? Well, that’s up to you. There will also be fossils for sale, so right there you know it’s high quality.

When: Friday, April 26 to Sunday, April 28
Where: Edmonton Expo Centre
Tickets: $8 for a day, get them here

Check out a tattoo festival

The Edmonton Tattoo and Arts Festival is apparently the biggest of its kind in Canada, with over 300 artists in attendance. Scope out your new favourite artist, or go in on a spontaneous flash piece.

When: Friday, April 26 to Sunday, April 28
Where: Edmonton Expo Centre
Tickets: $25 for a day, get them here

Buy some garden supplies

If us recommending the vintage show didn’t tip you off, now you know just how much we love buying old stuff. The Strathcona Antique Mall is hosting a vintage garden show. Want a new pot holder that’s not from IKEA? This is your chance.

When: Saturday, April 27 and Sunday, April 28
Where: Old Strathcona Antique Mall
Cost: Free to attend, we think! Bring a couple of bucks just in case

And those are our top picks for things to do this weekend, Edmonton! Catch you at the vintage garden show, and maybe at the tattoo expo.
