As per their website, no payment is required for on-street parking in Edmonton on Monday, February 19th, due to the stat holiday.


While grocery and convenience stores will be open this Friday, Costco will be unshoppable this Family Day Monday – Looks like you’ll have to get your massive hot dog fix before February 19th.

But there you have it, friends. Everything that’s open/closed this Family Day in Edmonton. Please be sure to double-check the hours of operation no matter where you’re headed and enjoy the day!
