Heyo, we’ve got a stat holiday on our hands! If you’re looking to make the most of Good Friday in Edmonton this year, then you’ve come to the right place. Check out a major attraction, enjoy some amazing activities, or see if a little bit of culture is what you need. Whatever the case, we’ve got you covered.

Here are 9 ways to make the most of Good Friday around Edmonton.


Vroom vroom! DRIVE: Reimagining the Ride is the newest feature exhibition to land at the RAM, and it focuses on the weirder side of automobile history. Ever wanted to see an amphicar up close and in person? This is your chance.

When: Open 10AM-4PM
Where: 9810 103a Avenue NW
Cost: Varies


If you need a break from the wintry weather, we’ve got the Muttart Conservatory! This indoor botanical garden is the perfect option for those wanting to speedrun that summer feeling.

When: Open 10AM-4PM
Where: 9626 96a Street NW
Tickets: $14.95 for GA


For something even more tropical, you can’t go wrong with this massive waterpark. Ride some slides, hang out in the wavepool, grab a bite to eat… it’s the perfect mix of unwinding with a little excitement as well.

When: Open 10AM-5PM
Where: 8882 170 Street NW
Cost: $45+


The AGA has got a serious amount of stuff to check out this weekend. What’s more, a new exhibition will land at the gallery on Friday. For those counting at home, that’s 10 temporary exhibitions and installations on view!

When: Open 11AM-5PM
Where: 2 Sir Winston Churchill Square
Cost: $14


There’s always something fun going on at the Telus World of Science, but we’ve got two things in mind here. First, their IMAX theatre is a great way to experience a classic movie, a new blockbuster, or a stunning documentary. Second, the Zeidler Dome has laser shows that are, frankly, out of this world.

When: Open 10AM-4PM
Where: 11211 142 Street NW
Cost: $31.45 for GA


If you’re ready to bundle up a little bit, then it could be time to head back to the zoo! Watching some animals lay around, play, and just vibe is weirdly therapeutic for us, and it’s fun for all ages.

When: Open 10AM-5PM
Where: 13315 Buena Vista Road
Cost: $10.95


For those wanting a little bit of culture this weekend, live theatre is back in a big way. Currently, the new show ‘The Herd’ is playing, and is an investigation into the differences between spiritual and scientific reactions to a once-in-a-lifetime event.

When: Showtime is at 7:30PM
Where: 9828 101 A Avenue
Cost: $30+


Of course, a nice movie is always a good idea for a day off. Especially because Cineplex is showing a wide variety of options, ranging from family-friendly picks (Sonic the Hedgehog 2) to mind bending art house stuff (Everything Everywhere All At Once).

When: Showtimes throughout the day
Where: Locations around Edmonton
Cost: Varies


Last but not least, this outdoor/indoor music fest coming back to Edmonton is a great choice for an energetic way to start the long weekend. Things kick off Friday, with multiple concerts lined up both at the event and for afterparties.
