Family Day Long Weekend Lineup YEG

HAPPY LONG WEEKEND (and Valentine’s Day)!

I cannot wait for this long weekend! I think it is well deserved after weeks of sub-arctic temperatures and aren’t we a bunch of lucky Edmontonians because there is SO much to do in the city this weekend!

Downtown-Skyline-Edmonton-Alberta-Canada-01A

Apart from the always amazing City Market Downtown (in City Hall for the season) and Strathcona Market there are mad festivals and events happening! You could check out:

Winter Fest – A three day Music Festival featuring local and North America’s best Folk & Roots Performers

Silver Skate Festival – The biggest winter celebration in Edmonton! Taking place in Hawrelak Park, you can go skating, check out performances from local artists, and visit the FIRE sculpture!

Winefest Edmonton – Need I say more?!  Tickets are still available for Saturday February 15th afternoon and who doesn’t like a little day drunk every now and again?

Could Nine Refinery at the Art Gallery of Alberta – Float away on Cloud Nine, your AGA’s latest Refinery late-night art party! Inspired by the elevating elements of our popular exhibition Of Heaven and Earth: 500 Years of Italian Painting from Glasgow Museums

Sailin’ On Valentines Pop Up Brunch – I have yet to try Edmonton’s first…and probably only ALL vegan food truck, hopefully this Sunday February 16th will be my chance!

And that’s not even mentioning the CRAY amount of romantic Valentine’s options out there! You could watch the classic Casablanca at Metro Cinema or head down to the Edmonton Valley Zoo and check out their Animal Attraction evening (including drinks and dessert) or even make googly eyes at your lover over a four-course dinner at Fort Edmonton Park. You can read about all these events and more in this Edmonton Journal article. Now, I don’t want to hear anybody whining about having nothing to do this weekend or being bored at home – get going!

Cheers!
