Odysseo by Cavalia has arrived in Edmonton, and you're invited to see the only 6-D show in the world.
The largest touring tent ever built has already been erected in Edmonton at Yellowhead Trail and Fort Road, but the show doesn't start until July. Beginning with an opening night gala performance on July 9, 2014, and running until August 3, Odysseo promises to entertain Edmonton just as it has some of the largest North American cities over the last three years, including Los Angeles, Toronto, Montreal, Phoenix, and Boston.
Summertime is just around the corner, when events in Edmonton begin to kick into high gear. There are so many festivals in June, for example, that we couldn't decide which one to spotlight. Instead, we're showcasing a few at a time.

They don't call our fair town Festival City for nothing. The next big Edmonton festival, celebrating the local hip-hop music scene, is coming up at the end of May. This year, Hip-Hop in the Park 2014 has been rebranded as Bring Out the Block, and although it's no longer held at its usual spot at Louise McKinney Park, it promises to be an amazing day of free, all-ages, family-friendly fun. All of the artistic elements of hip-hop culture are featured in a positive way, including rapping, DJing, Bboying (dance), beatboxing, and graffiti art. And, yes, there will also be a BBQ.
May through June is your chance to savor worlds of imagination, music, and passion over six weeks of classic and modern operas. All that and more awaits you when the Vocal Arts Festival returns to Edmonton.
We're proud to give you two reasons to visit Edmonton in May, and if you plan really well, you might be able to enjoy both of them. For volleyball fans, we have the U17/U18 Canadian Open, and for film fans, we have the Global Visions Film Festival.
You might not believe it, based on the wintry weather we've been having for the last few days, but spring officially began last week. We should be seeing warmer weather next week as April begins. What better time than this to enjoy a Sunday brunch with family and friends?
BUILDEX Edmonton is returning to the Edmonton Expo Centre at Northlands on March 18 and 19. Over 2,500 industry professionals are expected to attend this year to view exhibits featuring the latest trends in architecture and interior design, construction and renovation, and real estate and property management.
Edmonton has long been known as as Festival City, and for good reason. With over 30 festivals held here each year, there's a lot to choose from. The Expanse Festival is a fantastic four-day celebration of art in motion that invites you to be moved by the power of body-made, movement art.
