See circus artists fly through the air — and support a good cause

Take a musical journey to Hogwarts

On June 7 and 8, the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra is taking audiences to a more magical place — the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. The evening’s repertoire will feature music from all 8 films, including compositions by John Williams, Patrick Doyle, Nicholas Hooper and Alexandre Desalt.

Enjoy a fair with an eco-friendly twist

If one fair just isn’t enough for the summer — and K-Days seems a world away — stop by this eco-friendly fair on the south side. The one-of-a-kind green carnival, Sustainival, will take place from June 8 to 11 and feature all the typical fair festivities, from rides to mini-donuts to games.
