Create Winter Experiences with Silver Skate Festival this February
Edmonton’s longest running winter festival returns to celebrate winter sport, recreation, arts & culture, and the return of live music in William Hawrelak Park February 11 – 21, 2022.
We invite everyone to rediscover the joy of that first childhood snowfall or discover that joy for the first time. Feel the breeze on your face as you glide along the city's largest skating pond while listening to a tuneful compilation of Edmonton-based music. Marvel at the artistic talent on display in the Waiward Snow Sculpture Garden. Explore the Imperial Oil Folk Trail, visit this year's TC Energy Heritage Village, and listen to local Indigenous elders' oral histories via Night Sky ᐋᒋᒧᐃᐧᐣ âcimowin story telling. How fast you can skate Silver Skate's traditional 1km race loop on the pond - can you beat the record for most loops in an hour? Push yourself to a personal best in the Mammoet Sporting Challenges and enter your times to win great prizes!
We challenge you to embrace your environment: explore the river valley, go for a skate, make a snow angel, or visit a winter patio. Winter is magic, and the outdoor experiences in our city are limitless.
