August in Edmonton

Summer's not over yet, and August has plenty to offer Edmontonians...

by emil tiedemann

TECHNICALLY, summer goes on well into September. Mentally, summer ends with the last days of August. And so, you may have that urge to take advantage of these "final four" weeks and get in as much of Edmonton's vast and diverse summer traditions as possible. 

So, because I heart you guys so much, I have gathered up a list of more than 50 exciting events going down in and around E-town during the month of August. However, these are only those special and/or annual events happening in the Capital Region, so don't forget that there are always countless of other daily, weekly, or monthly events going on in and around the city as well! #yeglove
