Explore Edmonton: Summer Events To Check Out This August 2022

Summers in Edmonton are pretty phenomenal!

There’s so much to do and we get sunshine for so much of the day that it’s hard not to find yourself eager to get out and about in and around the city during the summer season.

As the summer winds down, I wanted to share a few events in the city you might consider checking out this August 2022.

These events are extra special because they’ll actually feature EPCOR’s Glass of the Sask community water tank—serving free, delicious, local tap water!

No really, Edmonton’s tap water is amazing and that’s why I was excited to partner with EPCOR this summer to highlight our local water—and other things local, like restaurants and events.

EPCOR’s Glass of the Sask initiative celebrates Edmonton and the things that make it unique – including community-building events like block parties and community league days.

Be sure to check out some of these community events in Edmonton this August 2022 and while you’re there—enjoy a Glass of the Sask on EPCOR!
