Hold on to your mini-donuts — K-Days is back

Whether it’s the rides, food, games, shows or just browsing vendors in a sea of people, K-Days has something for everyone. The annual event kicks off July 20 with the parade, followed by a kaleidoscope of activities for all ages. Make sure to catch it before the rides go dark for another year on July 29.

Edmonton Expo Centre, 7515 118 Ave, k-days.com

Sample bites from fantastic spots around the city

Taste of Edmonton returns July 18 through 29 to mesmerize our senses. First, there’s the food and drink to satisfy our taste buds. Then, there’s the music to snap us from the waiting food coma and keep the party going strong. With performances from Sloan, Virginia to Vegas and The Harpoonist & The Axe Murderer, your ears will be just as satisfied as your stomach.

Enjoy a concert in a more intimate venue

In a week of big stage concerts, between Taste of Edmonton and the kick off for K-Days, there’s also an opportunity to enjoy some live music in a more intimate setting. YEG Music’s Acoustic Spotlight series is happening on July 17 at the Wild Earth Café and features the talent of Kena León, Bob Howse, Joe Wozniak and The Folk Disease.
