The Silver Skate Festival has been a hidden gem in the city for years, and thanks to social media, this event finally receives the attention it deserves. Even in winter city, it’s hard to have an annual winter event last 27 years. In fact, it is the oldest running winter festival in the city. No other winter festival in Edmonton brings together drama, art, sports, fire, ice, and fun like Silver Skate.
The 2017 festival runs Feb 10-20 in Hawrelak Park. You may also enjoy the Ice Castle while you’re at Hawrelak Park. Schedule of events here.
