Why is Edmonton different?
There are theories. Maybe it’s our northern home, where for years we’ve learned to make our own fun. Perhaps it’s our legacy of entrepreneurs dreaming up oddities: the continent’s first, biggest and wildest Fringe theatre festival and a shopping mall that at one time had more submarines than the Canadian navy. Edmontonians have always been unusually keen to try, and build, something new.
We’re a big city with small town values; a vibrant urban centre in the heart of wilderness. From close encounters with free roaming bison to surfing indoors to taking your taste buds on a journey to some of the hottest craft beer taprooms, hyper-local bistros and indie bakeries in Canada, you’ll find there’s a uniqueness to how Edmontonians do ordinary things. And we want you to be a part of it.
One thing’s for sure – if you’re looking for an unforgettable, original experience, you’ll find it here. Peruse our list of activities and poke around ExploreEdmonton.com for all the proof you need.
