Birthday Deals in Edmonton

When a birthday falls on a weekday, or to those who don’t like big parties, it’s sometimes difficult to find a way to celebrate that special day. Luckily, there are places that are willing to make sure you still have a chance to make it a good one.

Here are some birthday deals in Edmonton. We recommend you register onto their loyalty program a month prior to your birthday so that the automated systems are able to send your birthday offer.

If you know of any others or have an update, be sure to let us know by sending us a message on social media @yegventures. This list is updated for 2022.
