Extra Park 'n' Ride now available from Churchill Square starting at 6pm. In addition, a free shuttle from TELUS Field will operate from 6pm to 11pm.

This year, the High Level Bridge was fitted with 60,000 LED lights. We're celebrating this scenic addition to the river valley with a performance that will tie in the visual of this dynamically lit Edmonton landmark with the spectacular sounds of the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra and Edmonton's favourite celtic-rooted family, The McDades. Join us for a one-time outdoor concert experience, capped off with Tchaikovsky's 1812 Overture!

Free admission - no tickets required. Please bring your own seating.

Additional Activities
