Nothing beats winter in Edmonton
Edmontonians are a hearty bunch. Winter means it’s time to bundle up and get ready for a great time. Whether you’re looking for outdoor activities to embrace the weather, or you want to stay warm and cultivate some cultural experiences indoors, nothing beats winter in Edmonton. The Vertica Resident Services blog team wants to get you started on your winter adventure with a few fun activities and experiences to enjoy.
Snowshoe and Stargaze
Looking for a different and dazzling way to spend a Saturday night? Register for the Snowshoe and Stargaze event at Elk Island National Park, only 30 minutes east of Edmonton. Enjoy a guided snowshoe hike around Astotin Lake, then warm yourself by the fire and learn to navigate the stars in Beaver Hills Dark Sky Preserve. It happens every Saturday, from 7 pm until 9 pm, from now until the end of February.
Christmas may be over, but it’s not too late to catch Christmas Glow. Let the temperatures drop as you cozy up indoors at The Enjoy Centre (101 Riel Drive, St. Albert) and enjoy the magical twinkle of a million lights. This family-friendly event offers interactive features, playgrounds, illuminated sculptures, as well as a Marketplace, food and seasonal beverages.
Alberta Ballet continues to bring world-class performances to Edmonton this winter. Catch the fusion of ballet and modern dance as Ballet BC take the stage on January 22nd and 23rd. In February, experience de.Vi.ate, an evening of three contrasting modern ballets within a riveting multimedia spectacle.
Edmonton Symphony Orchestra
Escape this winter with the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra at The Winspear Centre. Enjoy an evening of Ravel, Shostakovich & Stravinsky, conducted by Jean-Marie Zeitouni, on January 11th and 12th at 7:30 pm and 8 pm respectively. See a full list of concerts and plan your winter calendar.
