August 6 to 10, 2013
Rock'n August is an international car show and music festival taking place in St. Albert, Alberta - a suburb of Edmonton. Last year, there were close to 550 classic car entries into the event and more than 50,000 people attending, making Rock'n August one of the largest events to take place in the province of Alberta. For 2013, it promises to be another huge year. Visitors to Rock'n August come from all over North America - British Columbia and Saskatchewan, Washington, Idaho, and Montana - truly making Rock'n August an international car show.
The primary goal of Rock'n August is to continue to be a significant contributor to diabetes research and education. The Alberta Diabetes Foundation at the University of Alberta has set the international benchmark for treatment of diabetes with Islet Cell Transplantation. This year Rock'n August will make every effort to bring $150,000 to the doctors and researchers who specialize in this disease that will affect one in four Canadians in the next three to four years. All funds raised by Rock'n August remain within the province of Alberta.
If you can't get enough of classic cars, you might want to head to Nelson, B.C. Sept. 6 for the Queen City Cruise. Click here for the details.
