Edmonton Weekend Guide :: May 1-4

Welcome May with open arms (and markets) this weekend! Let's forget about that bit of snow we might see...

See: Hairspray at Mayfield Dinner Theatre
Shop: Callingwood Farmers' Market opens on Sunday
Eat: Hummingbird Cupcakes from Crave
Sold Out: Urban Craft Beer & Food Festival

Art on the Block returns to Art Gallery of Alberta on Friday night. The artsy social event of the season offers 100 art auction items for enthusiasts and collectors, cocktails, canapes and fierce outfits. Take a peek at the auction items here. Few tickets remain, catch yours quick! 

It's that time of year when parking at the University becomes...interesting. Butterdome Spring Craft Sale takes over for its 8th year from Friday to Sunday. Peruse over 170 booths of handmade creations from all over Canada. Shop clothing and accessories, body care, yummy treats, home decor and more.

Learn more about the neighbourhoods we live in through guided walking tours from Jane's Walk Edmonton. Started in Toronto in 2007, the walks began as an informative way to honour urbanist Jane Jacobs' vision of walkable neighbourhoods and people meeting others in their community. Join the kick off party on Friday at lunch at City Hall, and see which upcoming walks tickle your fancy.

This month's theme for Movies at the Capitol at Fort Edmonton Park is Mom's Favourites. The series starts on Thursday night with Pride and Prejudice. Every Thursday, a classic movie is screened in the historic Capitol Theatre. No need to pay Park admission - It's just $10 for the movie ticket (free parking).
