Our Top Tourism Picks!

Edmonton City Centre is located in the heart of the downtown core and we are within walking distance to many of Edmonton’s prime attractions. Once you are done shopping, why not check out the fun attractions and events that downtown Edmonton has to offer? Below are some suggestions that you can take in.

Art Gallery of Alberta – Lovers of Visual Art will enjoy AGA’s stunning collection of over 6,000 pieces of art. The Art Gallery of Alberta hosts collections both contemporary and historical. If your stay is short, make sure you walk over to enjoy the architecture of the building itself, an art piece designed by the late Randall Stout. The AGA is currently offering free admission to youths 17 and under; and post-secondary students. Visit their events page here to see what they have going on.

Fairmont Hotel MacDonald high tea – Experience the Royal tradition of high tea just like Queen Victoria and other European aristocrats by making your reservations for the ‘Royal Tea and Tour’ by Fairmont Hotel MacDonald today. Enjoy a menu centered on small cakes, fresh baked breads, dainty sandwiches, an assortment of sweets, and, of course, tea while reveling in the history and beauty of one of Edmonton’s most iconic landmarks. In addition to tea, there is a historical tour of the hotel.

If you are unable to make it to this weekend-only high tea offering, a lighter version, the Weekday high tea, is offered from Monday to Wednesday.

City Market Downtown on 104 St – It’s that time of year again, where the City Market moves from within Edmonton City Hall to 104 St outside (4thStreet Promenade). Locals and visitors alike are invited to come down and shop fresh, locally made food and goods every Saturday from 9am to 3pm. Vendors in this outdoor market sell a variety of unique products that are hard to find anywhere else in the city! Cool finds include locally grown produce, artisanal food stuffs, natural beauty and health products, locally made décor, goodies and treats for the family, and so much more!

Rogers Place / Ice District – Located in the heart of Edmonton’s downtown core, Rogers Place is home to the Edmonton Oilers as well as state of the art technology, including the largest high definition screen in the NHL. Even if you can’t catch Connor McDavid live in action, check out the pedway over 104 Avenue to the Oilers Hall of Fame, featuring replicas of the five Stanley cups the Oilers have won over the years, jerseys, and various memorabilia. Additionally, The Molson Canadian Hockey House within Fort Hall is open to the public and features several big screens, food, and drinks for those who want to watch the Oiler’s in action!

If hockey isn’t your cup of tea, Rogers Place also hosts concerts and other sporting events as well. There is also a beautiful mosaic made by renowned Aboriginal artist Alex Janvier in Fort Hall. Other public art pieces include Essential Tree in the northwest plaza, Skater’s Arch in the northwest plaza and 9 Figures in Motion with a Puck at the entrance of the Downtown Community Arena.
