Edmonton EXPO Centre, Edmonton, AB
Edmonton, Alberta serves as an epicenter of diverse cultural experiences. Its robust entertainment scene hosts an array of concerts, sporting events, comedy shows, and theater performances that cater to a broad spectrum of tastes and interests. As a launchpad for local talent and a magnet for international acts, the city has crafted a unique personality over the years, breaking away from the stereotype of being merely a 'Gateway to the North.'

You’ll find acts like Dallas Smith and Ruth B, who have performed at popular venues like Rogers Place and the Northern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium. Jazz and indie genres have also seen their share of limelight through homegrown talents like Tommy BANKS and Mallory Chipman. But for those interested in a Musical time-tRavel, River City Revival House frequently hosts tribute bands offering a nostalgic trip back to the classics.

Tthe Edmonton Oilers in ice hockey and the Edmonton Eskimos in Canadian football are the teams to watch. Their matches are more than just games; they're communal gatherings that electrify the city. Rexall Place, prior to its closure, and now Rogers Place, serve as the battlegrounds where fans Join Forces to cheer on their local heroes.

The Comic Strip is where acts like Graham Chittenden and Andrew Grose regale Audiences. However, the Fringe Festival steals the show by being North America's largest and oldest fringe fest, offering everything from experimental theater to stand-up comedy.

The Citadel Theatre stands out. Often considered a mecca for dramatic arts in the city, it has seen performances of plays like "A Christmas Carol" and "The Color Purple" but also welcomes lesser-known productions that are equally spellbinding. Mayfield Dinner Theatre adds a unique twist by offering a full-course meal with their performances, delivering a multifaceted experience that's hard to match.

Concerts in Edmonton


Edmonton's concert scene is as dynamic as it is diverse, offering performances from artists across genres and levels of fame. From indie to Electronic, folk to metal, there's something for every listener. Performers like James Blake, Ingrid Michaelson, and Gary Clark Jr. have rolled through smaller venues like The Starlite Room. Medium-sized events featuring artists such as Two Door Cinema Club or Interpol often take place at The Union Hall.

On the larger end of the spectrum, Rogers Place often hosts chart-toppers and legendary musicians—think Celine Dion or Metallica. Commonwealth Stadium isn't just for sports; it's served as a venue for large concerts as well, such as Guns N' Roses. The Northern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium offers a more traditional setting and has seen a variety of performers, from Rufus Wainwright to Yo La Tengo. Don't overlook The Winspear Centre; its state-of-the-art acoustics make it ideal for more sonically nuanced acts like the Kronos Quartet or Max Richter.

Sports in Edmonton


The city is home to the Edmonton Oilers, an NHL team that plays at Rogers Place. This modern facility not only hosts hockey but also serves as a multi-use indoor arena for other events. In the realm of football, the Edmonton Elks hold court at Commonwealth Stadium, one of the larger open-air stadiums in Canada, known for its impressive scale and atmosphere.

Turning to soccer, FC Edmonton competes in the Canadian Premier League and calls Clarke Stadium home. This venue is smaller than Commonwealth but offers a more intimate viewing experience for fans of the sport. For those interested in basketball, while not hosting an NBA team, the city still has plenty of action through the Edmonton Stingers who play in the Canadian Elite Basketball League. The team competes at the Edmonton Expo Centre, which is versatile enough to host a variety of events.

Comedy in Edmonton


Edmonton is a city that knows how to laugh, with a comedy scene that has been graced by the likes of Jim Jefferies, Margaret Cho, and Mike Birbiglia over the years. The comedy venues themselves are as varied as the performers. The Comedy Factory offers a traditional comedy club environment, often featuring local talent along with well-known names on tour. If you're more into an intimate setting, Grindstone Theatre might be more your speed; it specializes in improv and also hosts scripted comedy shows. On the other hand, Yuk Yuk's is part of a well-known chain and brings in comics from across North America.

Theater Shows in Edmonton


Shows like "Waitress," "Come From Away," and "Anastasia" have toured through the city, drawing in audiences looking for Broadway-level productions. Then you have locally produced works like "Fortune Falls" or "The Silver Arrow" that originated from the Citadel Theatre, one of Canada's largest not-for-profit theatres.

The venues also cater to a wide array of preferences. The Citadel is a standout, housing multiple stages and often hosting large productions. The Varscona Theatre is another go-to, often featuring plays from independent companies. The Mayfield Dinner Theatre offers a unique experience, combining a full-course meal with live theater. Theatre Network at The Roxy focuses on Canadian works and experimental theatre, perfect for those who want a break from mainstream productions. Finally, there’s the Walterdale Theatre, one of the oldest community theatres in Canada, known for its volunteer-driven productions.
