Encourage your clients to visit the historical Old Strathcona district for a festival and return to explore the famous farmers’ market and the galleries and shops. Visit with local vendors, find a funky restaurant and stick around for the night life – live theatre, music and dancing. Spend a day at West Edmonton Mall, the largest shopping and entertainment complex in North America.
Escape the urban bustle without leaving the city. Twenty-two major parks make up Edmonton’s ribbon of green stretching along the North Saskatchewan River – the largest expanse of urban parkland in North America. Many of the summer festivals happen here. All along its 150 km (93 mi) of multi-use trails, your clients will encounter happy cyclists, runners and ramblers.
When the snow falls, your clients can embrace the city’s passion for winter and take in an authentic winter festival. Experience cross-country skiing and snowshoeing in the river valley. Or carve some powder on four downhill ski slopes right in the river valley.
