If you’re hoping to add an extra dash of summer fun to your schedule, we’ve got just the idea in mind. The Backyard in Edmonton is once more hosting by-donation concerts all season long, and things are already underway. Here’s what to know about the series.

Originally kicking off during the pandemic, For The Love of Downtown has become a practically non stop showcase of musicians from Edmonton and around Alberta. Every Thursday, The Backyard hosts a live concert, and often multiple of them, for anyone to come check out!

In addition to the concerts, The Backyard also gets a local restaurant or vendor to offer a little food each week as well! This week, for example, features a pop-up from Guru Kitchen + Bar, and there are about a half dozen more names joining in on the fun.

So, how does one check it out? By donating! Two Edmonton-based charities have been chosen to get the help- -Boyle Street Community Services and Edmonton’s Food Bank. There’s no minimum donation required, so bring whatever you can afford and get ready for some fun!
