Location: Edmonton, Alberta

Winterruption YEG returns with a stacked line-up of music and comedy taking place in downtown Edmonton from Jan 24 - 28, 2024. The winter festival takes place in multiple downtown Edmonton venues.

Started in 2019 in conjunction with Winterruption festivals in Saskatoon, Regina, Winnipeg and Calgary’s Big Winter Classic, Winterruption YEG works closely with the local business and the arts community of Edmonton.
