Show your appreciation for fantastic local cocktails

Made With Love is an annual event that allows you discover a bit more about the city’s craft cocktail scene, and this year, 14 talented barchefs will present original cocktails and food pairings. There will be talent from North 53, Baijiu, Have Mercy, Situation Brewing, Three Boars Eatery and many more — so if you’re a cocktail fan, you need to add this to your schedule.

Fairmont Hotel Macdonald, 10065 100 St., enjoymadewithlove.com


See a classic musical on stage

The Phantom of the Opera returns to the Jubilee auditorium stage on July 26, and the cast and orchestra of 52 make this production one of the biggest on tour at the moment. The musical has become a classic, and if you’ve never had the opportunity to see it live, now’s your chance.

Sample some of Edmonton’s tastiest treats

Taste of Edmonton is taking place in Churchill Square from July 20 to 29, so make sure to stop by before it’s too late. The event, Canada’s largest food festival, keeps things fresh and local with new programs, bites from restaurants around town and more.

Check out an inspiring documentary about urban planning

On July 25 and 27, Metro Cinema is screening Citizen Jane: Battle for the City, a 2016 documentary about activist and author Jane Jacobs. The documentary centers on Jacobs’ battle to prevent urban planner Robert Moses from building over historic sections of New York City in the 1950s and 1960s. If you read The Death and Life of Great American Cities and were intrigued by the author, this documentary is a must see.

Garneau Theatre, 8712 109 St., 780-425-9212, metrocinema.org


Stop by the Scott Gallery for an exhibition featuring two artists

“Zones One and Two: New Alberta Landscapes” is a new exhibition at the Scott Gallery featuring the work of artists Michael Miller and Mitchell Fenton. While Miller’s work explores the beauty of boreal and parkland forests, Fenton’s depicts the Rocky Mountains and surrounding areas. The exhibition runs until July 29.
