10 of one of the best issues to do in Edmonton this weekend (Could 13-15)

Hey Edmonton! It appears that the less than ideal spring weather is taking a break this weekend, and we couldn’t be happier about it. Get outside, eat some delicious food, maybe hang out on a patio… you’ve got tons of options, all of which we definitely sign off on.

Here are the 10 best things to do in Edmonton this weekend.

WATCH THE OILERS

Game seven, and it’s at home!? If there’s one thing you need to do this weekend, it’s cheering on the Oilers as they hope to finish off the Kings in the first round. If you can’t afford tickets to the game (join the party) then we suggest you check out all the best places in the city to join the excitement.

ALBERTA BIKE SWAP – EDMONTON

Feeling inspired by the Tour de France event coming to Edmonton? This weekend, you can check out the return of the massive Alberta Bike Swap, offering serious discounts on bikes across all price levels. Heck, if you want a bit of a challenge, you’ll get an even better deal of bikes that need a little TLC before they’re good to ride.

When: Saturday, May 14th
Where: 10700 104 Avenue NW (MacEwan University Underground Parkade)
Cost: $2 for admission (proceeds to charity)

EDMONTON VALLEY ZOO

In addition to the regular exhibits, a super cool Lego one has landed at the zoo! Head down there to see some incredible Lego sculptures, which of course are focused on plants and animals.

When: Open throughout May
Where: 13315 Buena Vista Rd
Cost: $15.95 for GA

DRINK A BEER (PART 2)

Following up on last week’s list, we’ve got Part 2 of all the Edmonton breweries you need to try this spring and summer. With any luck, it’ll be a celebratory pint after the Oilers win!

U OF A BOTANIC GARDEN

If a leisurely day outside is more your speed, then we suggest you head to the Botanic Garden. It’s spring, flowers are blooming, and you’ve got acres upon acres of beautiful gardens to explore. Yeah, this isn’t a hard sell.

When: Open throughout the weekend
Where: 51227 AB-60, Parkland County
Cost: $19.75 for GA

WHC SUMMER SERIES

Wild Heart Collective’s 124 Grand Market returns this weekend. The food and drink event (plus a little shopping and entertainment) will be running Thursdays, Saturdays, and Sundays at locations around the city.

Where: Locations around Edmonton

When: Sunday, May 15th
Where: 2 Sir Winston Churchill Square
Cost: $14

ISAIAH RASHAD

For the music fans, this TDE mainstay is bringing some of the best of conscious rap to Edmonton! It’s an easy sell, between his deeper-than-most lyrics and top tier production.

When: Friday, May 13th
Where: 6107 104 Street NW
Cost: $49.50+

NORTH WEST FEST

Canada’s longest running nonfiction film fest wraps up this weekend! However, those looking to enjoy the options at home will be pleased to know that they’re keeping the virtual side as well. And of course, it doesn’t hurt that single screenings are under $10!
