The capital city of Alberta, set in the west of Canada, Edmonton is a center for cultural, educational, and governmental sectors. It also houses a year-round series of festivals, causing it to be dubbed as "Canada's Festival City." If you're planning to visit the city to attend some of its vibrant celebrations, there are many Edmonton hotels for you to choose from.
Included in this city's festivities are the Animethon in August, Edmonton International Film Festival in late September, Edmonton Poetry Festival in April, Edmonton Rocky Mountain Wine and Food Festival in August, Hip Hop in the Park Festival in May, The Work Art & Design Festival in late June, and the Silver Skate Festival in February, among many others. Additional highlights of visiting Edmonton are the West Edmonton Mall, which is one of the first largest malls in the world. There is also the Fort Edmonton Park, which is considered as the largest living historical museum in all of Canada.
A wide range of activities also await its visitors, such as snow tubing, gazing at the northern lights, and visiting the Elk Island National Park, all of which are very accessible from various Edmonton accommodations. Good food is also within an arm's reach from the many hotels in Edmonton--whether you're looking for a fancy dinner venue or the appetizing local street food scene.
With a celebration of almost everything from arts to music, and various cultures that include aboriginal, pop, and independent, there will surely be no dull moment in Edmonton.
