Northeast Alberta Festivals roll out red carpet


Métis Crossing, Vermilion and Athabasca are rolling out the red carpet, their Métis sashes and their white table cloths to celebrate live events again, just ahead of July long weekend.

Hard to believe that it’s been over two years since we’ve really been able to collectively get together through entertainment. Communities across northeast Alberta have a special invitation for you to join them for some music, culture and delicious eats.

#NEAB’s early summer events calendar brings together Métis Crossing, the Town of Vermilion and Athabasca County who all have a special invitation for you. 

How these events line up, the schedule can even allow for a special weeklong road trip to take it all in across Alberta’s northeast. 

Ever tried a jig? As Métis dancers will often tell you, it's impossible not to crack a smile while doing it. Go join in the dance at Alberta Métis Fest!

When your day of dancing, music and food is done, consider resting your head at the Lodge at Métis Crossing (newly opened winter 2022), for a unique stay that supports Alberta's premiere Métis heritage site.

Athabasca is a regional gem filled with forests, lakes and little B&Bs and friendly hotels to help you rest between fests. Find places to stay with Visit Athabasca.

As suggested at the top of this story – three events listed above can stack up into an epic week. Over at ZenSeekers we’ve got tons of inspiration to fill in the days before your next fest up in #NEAB through the #TakeItToTheLake in North East Alberta campaign. Let us know what you discover, use the hashtags #NEAB, #FestivalSeekers and #ZenSeekers

We at FestivalSeekers have been working out butts off these past few months updating our calendar to bring you the latest and greatest events this summer, not just across northeast Alberta, but across all of Alberta and BC. Don’t suffer from FOMO this summer, know and go!
