CityandBaby in Things to Do



My kids started school this week so we’ve been busy with all that excitement and getting back into the routine. But I couldn't leave you hanging so here’s a mini-guide of things happening this weekend. It’s Edmonton so you know there are tons of family-friendly fun happening! Here are a few ideas...

Start the weekend by watching Disney’s Fantasia accompanied by the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra. It’s a free outdoor event in Churchill Square! (Friday & Saturday)

This week is Race Week in Edmonton. We are hosting some of the world’s elite athletes for two international events: the ITU World and the Tour of Alberta. Get out and cheer on our guests and join in on the CASA Family Ride on Monday. 

It’s the final weekend for the season Alberta Railway Museum and the 1392 Steam Locomotive is running. If your child loves trains, this hands on, volunteer-run museum will delight them.  

You know it’s fall when all the sweet corn related events pop-up. Check out the Corn Festival at Prairie Gardens, the Edmonton Corn Maze, and the hidden gem Kraay Family Farm’s maze near Lacombe.

It’s harvest time at  Fort Edmonton Park. Learn how to preserve foods for the winter, welcome the York Boat’s arrival, watch grain thrashing, enjoy games, storytelling and more.

Reynolds-Alberta Museum is also hosting its Harvest Festival. You can see plowing, threshing and binding demonstrations, along with other displays, such as stooking, grinding grain, flailing, and winnowing.

Also on the outskirts of Edmonton is Beaver Hills Dark Sky Preserve annual Star Party happening at Miquelon Lake Provincial Park and Elk Island National Park. There are activities happening from 2pm until after the stars come out. 

Happy long weekend! See you out and about.
