A true hidden gem: The Edmonton Secret Streetcar Society is hosting a series of intimate performances on the High Level Street Car in September. This Thursday, catch "A Streetcar Named Rapid Fire" with Rapid Fire Theatre's hilarious improv performers. See the schedule and snap up the VERY limited tickets here

On Sunday, support Ronald McDonald House for their second Red Shoe Crawl. Sample an appetizer at many restaurant stops along 124th Street. Tickets are $40 each - a small price to pay to support a great cause and taste the treats at 24 locations. Register and get your passport at noon.

Edmonton's fashion peeps come together at Latitude 53 on Saturday night for Edmonton Fashion Industry Mixer.  Mingle with local fashion designers and enthusiasts over a drink and art. Tickets are $25 at the door.

Enjoy a five course meal with wine pairings in the countryside in support of Edmonton and Area Land Trust on Sunday.  Nature's Nourishment offers a gourmet dinner and wine pairings - all seasonal, local food artfully prepared by an executive chef. Bon appetit!

Bring the whole family to Callingwood Farmers' Market's 15th annual Corn Fest. Hot buttered taber corn, fire truck tours, a petting zoo (with pony rides), and more fun takes over the market on Sunday.
