Instagrammable Walls of Edmonton - Michael Phair Park

I’m excited to announce the fourth Instagrammable Walls of Edmonton Photo Walk taking place Saturday, September 16, 2017 in Downtown Edmonton! 

This time, my friend Brittney Le Blanc (@britl) will be co-hosting the photo walk – where we’ll take Edmontonians to some of the best Instagrammable Walls of the Downtown area from approximately 1 to 4 p.m. Meet at the Fountains at Churchill Square (in front of Edmonton City Hall). 

The #IGWallsofYEG photo walk is free to attend, family and dog-friendly, and just a generally good time. 

RSVP on Facebook and read more about what an Instagrammable Walk is, below!

Instagrammable Walls of Edmonton Downtown Walk September 16 2017

Let’s celebrate the beautiful, Instagrammable walls in our city by going on a Downtown Edmonton Instagrammable Walls Photo Walk. 

What is an Instagrammable Wall?

It’s basically an interesting-looking wall that makes a great backdrop for a photo of yourself or your friends, posted to Instagram. 

Instagrammable Walls can be mural walls, bold, colourful walls, graffiti walls, interesting textured-walls – you name it. Instagrammable Walls add beauty to a city, and attracts people to a location that might otherwise not be frequented. It can often surprise you. 

What is a Photo Walk?

A Photo Walk is when a group of people get together and walk around a specific location, finding interesting opportunities and areas for taking pictures. 

Bring your cameras/phones, cute outfits, water bottle or snacks, and comfortable walking shoes! You’re welcome to join us for the entire walk, or just parts of the walk. 

You can RSVP so we have an idea of numbers over on Facebook, or just show up the day of! 

Where is the Meeting Point?

On Saturday September 16,  we will meet at the Fountains at Churchill Square (in front of Edmonton City Hall) and walk as a group to several Instagrammable Walls in the Downtown area, stopping to take photos of one another at each wall along the way. This is a great opportunity to get awesome new profile pictures/cover photos and general great images of yourself and your friends with very artsy backdrops! 

See my Guide to the Top Instagrammable Walls of Edmonton

The first Instagrammable Walls of Edmonton Photo Walk took place on Saturday, June 3, 2017 as part of Make Something Edmonton’s 100 in 1 Day transform your city event. There’s been a great response from Edmontonians who want to go on these walks! The intent is to help Edmontonians discover the beauty that’s all around this city, and spur the creation of more Instagrammable Walls! 

Hope to see you on September 16!

  • My favourite appetizer at the new @thebutternuttree is their Grilled Bannock topped with wild mushrooms, berries, pumpkin seeds and "winged kelp." πŸ€— It was delicious! The Broccoli with crispy pork belly and leek ash coated duck egg (check my IG Story for #yolkporn!) was also excellent. Beautiful plates and beautiful views at this restaurant too (high ceiling windows all over). We had a lovely dinner last night at the #yegmedia event in a private room with #yegfood friends! Pricing wise- appetizers at #TheButternutTree are $13-$19, entrees are $28-$44, so it would make for a bit pricier a night out but you'll find a lot of unique ingredients here. You can tell lots of care is going into these dishes. Congrats on your opening Chef Downey & team! And thanks @bonafidemediapr for inviting us to check it out. #MeetatTBT ☺️

  • My favourite person to get my #yegseglegs with! πŸ‘«@mikethyking & I killed it (if I do say so myself 😌) on @rivervalleyadventureyeg's segways yesterday while filming for @travelalberta's "Edmonton on Wheels" promo video! πŸ’• I actually wish I could segway as a primary means of transportation, it's so fun/easy (and you can end up going so fast it's thrilling! πŸ’¨)

  • Sunday Funday! πŸ’• Today we went on the 15-passenger @urbanpedaltours bike through @oldstrathcona with @travelalberta! We stopped at @elcortezyeg (for chips, salsa & guac 😍), @maltandmortar, and @situationbeer before renting segways & bikes from @rivervalleyadventureyeg! It was a pretty wicked day exploring Edmonton on wheels. I can't wait to see the video (not airing until next spring lol). I LOVE segways!! #yegseglegs πŸ€— See more from the day in my Insta Stories!

  • This week I made a ton of homemade #gyoza that we've been enjoying, and froze a bunch for future enjoyment. 😊 I was pretty proud of my dumpling pleat and overall flavour/texture. (Artie was too!) I'm a "little of this, little of that" kind of cook (when not eating out lol), whose with me? πŸ™‹πŸ»πŸ’πŸ»πŸ‘©πŸ»β€πŸ³
