5 Things To Do: July 15 to 19

This week kicks off two of Edmonton’s marquee summer events

The big bump-set-spike

As part of the Olympic qualification process for the Tokyo Olympic Games in 2020, the FIVB Beach Volleyball World Tour Edmonton Open will take place from July 17 – 21. This will kick off the K-Days festival as Northlands hosts 100 teams from around the world!

Northlands Park, 7515 118 Ave., 780-471-7210, northlands.com

Have a taste

Check out Edmonton’s best, newest, hippest and classic favourite restaurants as they take to the streets along with almost a dozen food trucks from July 18 to 28. Beer or wine, sweet or savoury, gluten or gluten-free, folk music or jazz — whatever you fancy, you will be able to find it at Taste of Edmonton 2019!

A star is born (it’s you)

Clear out your vocal chords and hit those high notes (or listen to others do the same) at the Grindstone Theatre’s karaoke night, starting at 10 pm on July 18. As an added bonus, the bistro has 2-for-1 gourmet hot dogs!

The Grindstone, 10019 – 81 Ave, 780-244-9076, grindstonetheatre.ca

Outdoor music in the park

Local and Juno-nominated artists will bring to life Raven Wood Experience, the first annual music and art festival at Broadmoor Lake in Sherwood Park, July 19 and 20.

Ride, listen, eat, enjoy

Experience the wonder of K-Days, Edmonton’s extravaganza of rides, games, music, food and adventure. The rides and games alone will leave you breathless and wanting more. See the colourful parade full of brass bands and beautiful floats, and watch fireworks lighting up the night sky. Starting July 19, this 10-day festival has something for everyone!
