Whyte Avenue Art Walk is the best time of the year to pick up art from over 450 local artists. It's an outdoor studio and gallery that lines both sides of Whyte Avenue from 101 St to 108 St. Yes, that's 14 city blocks of gallery walking and artist meeting. 

Freewill Shakespeare Festival has moved indoors this year while repairs are made to the amphitheatre in Hawrelak Park. The Shakespeare is just as good indoors at Myer Horowitz Theatre, running daily (except Mondays) until July 27.

It's back for its 30th year! Edmonton International Street Performers Festival continues in Churchill Square until Sunday. Bring kids of all ages (yes, you!) and small bills and coins to tip the performers for all the laughs. 

Historic Festival & Doors Open Edmonton allows access to historic buildings, gardens, and more all weekend. This year's festival is an exciting showcase of greater Edmonton's rich history in culture and recreation. There are so many events to learn about the history and heritage of the Edmonton area. Check the schedule of events here.

Summer's version of ice carving: Sand On Whyte! See what masterpieces were brought to life by international sand carving artists in Old Strathcona. On display until Sunday on the corner of Whyte Ave and Gateway Boulevard.
