Another week, and another list of the things to do around Edmonton! We’ve got a little bit of everything in the forecast… some rain, some sun, some clouds, you know how it goes in June. One thing’s for sure though, we’re going to try and make the most of it no matter what’s in store.

Here are the 10 best things to do in Edmonton this week.


The Oilers have got their work cut out for them, but we’re still optimistic! Especially when they’re kicking off the week with a home game.

When: Monday, June 6th
Where: Locations around Edmonton


Next up, a local band with a very unique breed of electro-pop. Of future pop. Or synth pop. Honestly, we don’t know how to describe it, we just know that we like it!

When: Wednesday, June 8th
Where: 6240 99 Street NW
Cost: $33.50+


In just a few days time, Sustainival will come to Edmonton, bringing with it the world’s first ‘Green Carnival’. For over a decade now, this event has been showcasing the powers of renewable energy, and our city is going to get a taste!

When: Starts Thursday, June 9th
Where: 1 Kingsway NW
Cost: Free to access!


Nextfest has been an important part of the city for over two decades, giving up and coming artists from a variety of backgrounds and disciplines to showcase their talent.

When: On throughout the week
Where: Locations around Edmonton
Cost: Varies


First it was in Edmonton, then it went on a provincewide tour, and now it’s back for a final hurrah! Go have a laugh at one of the weirdest periods of time in recent history, told through throwing an end of year party at college.

When: Shows start Wednesday, June 8th
Where: 8406 Rue Marie-Anne Gaboury
Cost: $45+


As much as we love a state-of-the-art theatre, we might like this local option even more! Metro Cinema has always got a great selection of movies to check out, from cult comedies to art-house to things even we’ve never heard of!

When: Showtimes throughout the week
Where: 8712 109 Street
Cost: $13 for GA


Feeling outdoorsy? Whether you’ve got the whole day or just a few hours, Edmonton and the surrounding areas are filled to the brim with incredible hikes.

Ok, this pick might require a full day, or at least half of one. In the same vein, Alberta has something to offer in practically every style of golf, from target to inner-city options to links courses.

We almost forget about this one! After over a year of waiting, this acclaimed immersive art exhibit finally lands in the city next month! Enjoy the works of one of the world’s best painters, in a level of detail that rivals actually, you know, booking a flight to France to see them in person.

When: Opens Wednesday, June 8th
Where: 7515 118 Avenue NW
Cost: $34.95+ for GA


The already iconic destination got a major renovation last year, and this is its first full season back! Family-friendly options that double as date ideas are few and far between, but we definitely think Fort Edmonton Park is a great example of it.

When: Open Wednesday to Sunday
Where: 7000 143 Street NW
Tickets: $26.20 for GA

That’s what we’ve got in mind this week, Edmonton!
