Edmonton 104th Promenade Block Party

The 104 Street promenade will be party central with local acts Wool on Wolves, Oscar Lopez, Michael Rault, and Nuela Charles. Unwind after work and take in the live entertainment from a table at the Blue Plate Diner, Kelly’s Pub, Tzin and Cavern – local restaurants that will be extending their patio hours for this special event. Shop the artisan market along the promenade or participate in an art workshop. Hop on the Adventure Bus with the kids and be entertained by street performers performing through the evening.
