NEMO weekly: never miss out on Alberta & BC events


above: Art in the Park, Vermilion, coming up Sept 9, 2023

Labour Day weekend is ahead, summer is winding down and it’s nearly that familiar back to work time again. But that’s all the more reason to find your weekend fun at Alberta and BC festivals and events! 

From big fall music fests to local community arts gatherings and harvest celebrations, late summer is a great time to reconnect to your local scene, or to grab some friends and get out for one more big seasonal fest.

Alberta & BC event highlights Aug 25 - 27

Your weekly dose of NEMO is here to catch you up on what you missed and get you ready for the weekend ahead—so you never miss out on events and festivals in Alberta and BC.

Edmonton in full swing

Last weekend in Edmonton was a wild one, with the final weekend of the Edmonton Fringe, America's Duathlon and, among others, the Blues Fest ripping up the airwaves!
