4th Street Lilac Festival - Find me at booth 2227

This free one day event is the start up to Calgary's vibrant festival season, and encourages citizens to shake off their winter blues and reintroduce themselves to the thriving creative community in our city.

Each spring, thousands of attendees come out to enjoy the unique and pedestrian friendly 4th Street venue, offering an array of musical talent, artisan vendors, quality entertainment and some perfect people watching.

At the Lilac Festival, there is an activity made for all ages. This could mean a jump in the bouncer for the kids, discovering a great new band, choosing a perfect summer patio or searching for a trendy fashion; there is no shortage of things happening.

The 4th Street Festival Society works diligently to provide an ideal environment for new and emerging local musicians to showcase their talents. There are six stages hosting over 30 performances throughout the day, offering artists exposure to an often brand new audience.

4th Street is host to over 500 vendors that vary from artisan crafts, to imported wares, to community organizations and more.

3 Days, Hundreds of Artists

Imagine a 4 km walk through the hearts and minds of artists. Cultural explorers are invited to see art-making in action on streets of Old Strathcona, a vibrant art district in the historic centre of Edmonton, Alberta. Over 450 visual artists will bring their art supplies and art works out into the streets. Together they create an outdoor studio and gallery spanning several blocks. The Whyte Avenue Art Walk reveals Alberta’s hidden talent and provides an opportunity for patrons to curate their own art collection from many undiscovered masters.

Whyte Ave. The event is a grand promenade along Whyte Avenue (82 Ave) from 101 Street to 108 St. Artists will fill all the green spaces and several street closures too. It's a long tour so bring your walking shoes!
