Edmonton is truly an interfaith city, and people from every country in the world call it home. This multicultural character is celebrated every year at the “Servus Heritage Festival”, held August 4 – 6 in 2018, where you can enjoy music and dance and purchase food from over 80 countries. And entrance is free!
The spectacular Canadian Rockies are only a few hours’ drive from Edmonton and feature hiking, cable-car rides to mountain tops, waterfalls, a glacier, lakes (with a world famous picture site on Maligne Lake), wildlife, gift shops with Indigenous hand crafts and other souvenir pieces, golfing, hot-springs, 5-star accommodations, and much more.
Experience Edmonton summers, when daylight lasts to 11:00 PM and the sky remains dusk until the early-morning sunrise, and Northern Lights on special evenings.
