Four Fresh-Air Affairs in Downtown Edmonton

JUN 17
Mercer Summer Super Party
One of Edmonton’s coolest cultural hubs, the Mercer Warehouse, opens its doors to a closed 104 St. for one supersized block party. Explore all it has to offer inside—Mexican food, artisans and fashion designers—while outside music, art, food and dance awaits. (5pm-10pm, Mercer Warehouse, 10359 104 St., tinyurl.com/MercerSuperParty)

JUL 8
Meals on Wheels at Edmonton Prospects vs. Medicine Hat Mavericks
Step up to the plate and buy a 50/50 ticket in support of Meals on Wheels. Watch Edmonton’s minor league baseball team the Prospects take on the Medicine Hat Mavericks and help this meal subsidy program continue to hit home runs to those who are in need. (7pm, Telus Field, 10233 96 Ave., mealsonwheelsedmonton.org)

 

JUL 21–30
Taste of Edmonton
Look who’s turning the big 3-0! Celebrate the legendary festival’s milestones with great eats from your favourite—and maybe undiscovered—bistros, bakeries and bars, plus live music and refreshing beer and wine gardens. (Churchill Square, tasteofedm.ca)

 

 

 

AUG 2, 9, 16 & 23
Movies on the Square
Set up camp in Churchill Square with lawn chairs, snacks and (just in case) blankets to enjoy outdoor screenings of family movies on a three-storey high inflatable screen. Come early for pre-movie entertainment like group games and short films. (7pm, Churchill Sq., Edmonton.ca/attractions)
