10 of the most effective issues to do in Edmonton this week (23-27 August)

Here we are, Edmonton! The last full week of August, which also means one of the last weeks of summer. So, of course, we’ve included a few tips from our summer bucket list, just in case you have to tick off a few options sooner or later.

Here are 10 of the best things to do in and around Edmonton this week.

EDMONTON CORN Maze

The Edmonton Corn Maze is back for another season! This year the design is inspired by the folks at the Edmonton Food Bank. A must for all ages, the corn maze is just one of those classic summer experiences that you always enjoy.

When: Open all week
Where: 26171 Garden Valley Road, Spruce Grove
Costs: $ 13.50 + for GA

MUTTART CONSERVATORY

It took a long time, but the Muttart Conservatory has returned to town! This iconic Edmonton attraction is a must-see on less-than-prominent summer days. Damn it, we even like to visit when the sun is shining, and especially when it is combined with a walk in the park before or after.

When: Open all week
Where: 9626 96a Street NW
Tickets: $ 14.95 for GA

WATCH A MOVIE

When you need a little more relaxed choices, Edmonton cinemas are open again! All of the Cineplex locations are back, but usually we first look at what’s going on in local theaters like Metro Cinema. Why? Because we’re film fans, that’s why.

When: Playing times in August
Where: 8712 109 Street NW
Costs: $ 13

FORT EDMONTON PARK

Fort Edmonton Park only opened a few weeks ago but has already proven that the updated attraction is definitely worth a visit. From an updated middle ground to brand new things like an indigenous peoples experience, it will be amazing to revisit.

When: Open Wednesday to Sunday
Where: 7000 143 Street NW
Costs: $ 26.20 for GA

SEE IF YOU ARE AFRAID OF HEIGHTS

Are you ready to find your air limit? This popular local attraction is a great way to get outside. And as an added bonus, two more attractions have opened this year – a mining experience and a target golf area! Per tip head on a Thursday night to save a few dollars on entry.

When: Open all week
Where: 13204 Rainbow Valley Road NW
Costs: $ 37 +

EXIT INTO THE GARDEN

The stunning U of A Botanic Garden really combined like four different gardens is in full swing in full summer! The garden is just outside Edmonton and offers hours of relaxation and beauty as well as some fun architecture. Really, it is a must for nature lovers.

When: Open all week
Where: Parkland County, Alberta
Costs: $ 18.75

GEOSCAPES DINNER

This dinner series turned out to be so popular that it came back in the summer! Hosted by a local chef, these dinners are guaranteed to be a unique experience. Finally, eat a gourmet meal (with matching drink additives) in an air-conditioned dome that protects you from the elements! Sounds like a scene from Blade Runner 2049 to be honest.

When: Starts Friday, August 6th
Where: 13204 Rainbow Valley Road NW
Costs: $ 125 per person, minimum booking 4 people

STEP INTO THE PAST

The Ukrainian heritage village has returned for the summer. This expertly preserved cultural village offers an authentic glimpse into the life of the settlers in the late 19th / early 20th century. Sure, it’s a bit of a curveball for a selection, but we like it!

When: Open Wednesday to Sunday
Where: Highway 16 E, Lamont County
Costs: $ 15 for GA

PRESENTATION OF GOGH

Originally from Europe, this exhibition features the artist’s best works on a larger than life scale, using high quality projectors and audio for an even more immersive experience. If you’re looking for a fun mix of art and technology, this is a great time.

When: Open all week
Where: 7515 118 Avenue NW
Costs: $ 41.61 and up for GA

WATCH A LASER SHOW

For a slightly different experience, we cannot recommend laser shows in the Zeidler Dome of Telus World of Science enough. This state-of-the-art theater is one of the few places in Canada that still hosts shows by the likes of Pink Floyd and Daft Punk. Much better than sitting around a turntable, that’s for sure.

When: Open all weekend
Where: 11211 142 Street NW
Costs: Included in admission

This is our recap for this week! Have fun out there Edmonton!
