Things to Do This Week

Things to do this week: Bear Grease Musical, DARK at Fort Edmonton Park, the Smoky Lake Pumpkin Fair and more!
  • Get spooked at Fort Edmonton Park’s DARK (7000 143 St.)

    • DARK, Fort Edmonton Parks’s most thrilling and chilling experience, returns for the Halloween season this weekend Oct. 6-29. “Survive a horde of undead in a defenceless frontier town. Escape the deranged killer clown whose grand gesture is murder. Dare to discover what nightmares are made during the witching hour. Come for the scares, stay for the food and the fun.”

  • Check out Bear Grease the Musical (8700 – 84 St. Fort Saskatchewan, AB)

    • I was super excited to see that Bear Grease the Indigenous twist on the musical Grease is on at the Dow Centennial Centre Shell Theatre this weekend Saturday, Oct. 7. Go Grease Lighting! This ‘Indigenized Musical Theatre’ features an all Indigenous cast, and the production itself originated from Edmonton. I was lucky I got to see it back in 2021 in Edmonton.

  • Attend the popular Smoky Lake Pumpkin Fair (Smoky Lake, AB)

  • Experience Elk Island National Park’s Gateway to the Stars (Elk Island, AB)

    • Elk Island National Park’s Gateway to the Stars dark sky experiences return Fridays and Saturdays throughout October starting this weekend. “In the heart of the Beaver Hills Dark Sky Preserve, escape the city to gaze upon the countless stars and learn to navigate from one constellation to the next.” You need to register to attend this event.

  • Check out Edmonton’s newest River Valley Park (903 153 Ave.)

  • Attend 2SLGBTQQIA+ History Month at the Royal Alberta Museum

  • Go on a guided tour of Edmonton’s Chinatown (various locations)

    • The Chinatown Benevolent Association Youth Council and U of A Chinese Cultural Society are hosting a FREE guided tour of Edmonton Chinatown this Saturday, Oct. 7 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. It will start in Chinatown South and work up to Chinatown North (where you can then plan to have lunch in Chinatown!) From the organizers: “Chinatown is a mystery to some, and can feel intimidating to others. The neighbourhood has gone through several phases of relocation and transition. In spite of these upheavals and changes, the community of Chinatown is still strong… learn about the cultural and heritage history of the area.”
