This is what’s open and closed in Edmonton on Remembrance Day
November 11th is nearly here and many will have the day off to attend ceremonies and memorials. For this reason, it’s important to note which city services will and will not be available on Friday. From grocery stores, malls and government offices, here’s what is open and closed in Edmonton on Remembrance Day this year.
Hoping to catch a flick this Friday? Landmark Cinemas and Cineplex locations across the city will all be open so pop some corn and settle in!
Though we’d recommend checking their hours before heading out, West Edmonton Mall, Old Strathcona, Kingsway, Southgate Center and Edmonton City Center malls will be open.
EDMONTON VALLEY ZOO
Lions and tigers and bears (oh my!) – the Edmonton Valley Zoo will also be open this Friday and makes a great family outing, especially for those with kids!
Where: 13315 Buena Vista Rd
GROCERY & LIQUID STORES
Need milk or have been put in charge of a last-minute beer run? You’re in luck. Though (again) we’d recommend checking your local stop hours, most liquor and grocery stores will be open this Friday.
TELUS WORLD OF SCIENCE
Science rules! Especially when you get to check out some amazing family-friendly exhibitions and then maybe treat yourself to a movie inside the IMAX, or a little light show in the Zeidler Dome.
Where: 11211 142 St NW, Edmonton

This Friday you will also be able to visit several Edmonton museums like the Royal Alberta Museum, the Art Gallery of Alberta, and the Alberta Aviation Museum, though we’d recommend checking your chosen locations hours before heading out.
While transit will be operational on Friday, November 11th, trains and buses will run on their Saturday schedule, so plan accordingly. In addition, veterans and active members who are in military uniform or legion dress, with a Canadian Forces or RCMP identification card, or with a Veterans’ card or National Defense Record can ride free.
CITY-OWNED RECREATIONAL FACILITIES AND LEISURE CENTRES
Plan ahead Edmonton! This Friday, some city-owned pools, as well as fitness and rec centers (including Clareview, Commonwealth Community, The Meadows, and Terwillegar Community Rec centers) will be open with reduced hours, while others will be closed for the day. For more information, check out the city’s website here,
Whether it’s an Amazon return or an invitation – it’ll have to wait! This Remembrance Day (and every stat holiday) the post office will be closed.
While grocery and convenience stores will be open, Costco will be unshopping this Friday. Looks like you’ll have to get your massive hot dog fix before November 11th!
