Taste of Edmonton returns to the Alberta Legislature’s Capital Plaza, and for the first time ever, you don’t have to buy card pages to fix your food.

Mobile tickets are available through the Crowdblink Patron app, which is available for both Apple and Android phones.


Policy change consolidates Capital Plaza as a permanent festival location in Edmonton

“We listened to our attendees and most found the lines were too long,” said Paul Lucas, general manager of Events Edmonton, in a statement.

“To mitigate this, we are switching to mobile tickets and working with Crowdblink so that participants can buy tickets via the app.”

Events Edmonton said each booth will be equipped with scanners that people can use to redeem their digital tickets.

Physical tickets will continue to be available, and those who purchase tickets before July 17 will receive $ 10 off for every 40 tickets purchased.


Like Taste of Edmonton, K-Days, and other summer festivals, waste could be reduced

Participants can skip the line-ups during the festival by pre-purchasing their tickets online or via the app at select CO-OP gas stations, pop-up locations (to be announced) and the Events Edmonton office.

The festival takes place on the Legislative Grounds (near 99 Avenue and 108 Street) July 18-29 and features more than 50 food vendors and live music by Canadian artists.

To open the festival to dietary restrictions, this year’s offering includes vegan and celiac options.

The full list of vendors for the 2019 festival is expected to be released in June, Events Edmonton said.
