Excitement in Edmonton: August/September, 2014

The summers in Edmonton are full of exciting events and activities.  These are a few of the things that are coming up.

The Edmonton Fringe Festival is one of the first international theatre festivals in the world, and it’s the biggest in North America.  You can spend time in the Old Strathcona area, just enjoying the environment, and you can also spend almost 2 full weeks watching one theatre presentation after another in many different venues.  Nothing is very expensive, and it’s an exciting environment.

Edmonton has been hosting International Triathlon events for many years now, and this year will be the biggest event yet.  It will continue all week, between August 25 and September 1.  Events will happen at William Hawrelak Park, in the river valley.  Many athletes are already practicing there every day.

There is an international cycling tour, throughout the province of Alberta, during the first week of September.  The last 3 days will be in or near Edmonton.  This is a big event, similar in nature to the Tour de France.
