It's Summer Festival Season in Edmonton!

Since moving to Edmonton in 1990, I have always enjoyed how alive the city is during the summer months.  What better way to appreciate the stunning river valley views, dramatic skyline and quaint exclusive shopping along Whyte Avenue than to hit the streets and take in some of the festival performances!  Here is a list of some of the many summer festivals to be enjoyed:
