Make Some Noise – It’s Festival Season in Wood Buffalo!
There’s nothing like a festival to celebrate the long, warm days of summer and bring the entire Wood Buffalo community together.
Festival season kicks off with the June Bug Children’s Festival Relax in the first warm days of summer as your little one enjoys bouncy castles, balloon art, face-painting, musicians and performers.
Celebrate Canada’s birthday in style at the NexenCanadaROCKS concert where you’ll hear some of Canada’s biggest names in entertainment, enjoy the Canada Day parade on Franklin Avenue downtown, and cap off the long weekend with an amazing fireworks show
interPLAY is one of the region’s most popular annual events. More than 20,000 visitors flock to Fort McMurray’s downtown for Wood Buffalo’s premier visual and performing arts festival. Marvel at roving street performers, stand-up comedians, actors, musicians and artists of all stripes as you enjoy the sights and sounds of Fort McMurray’s downtown scene
There’s no better way to celebrate summer’s end than at the Big Spirit festival, a celebration of all things Wood Buffalo. Stroll the midway, take in a concert at the Country Music Jubilee, sample some of the region’s most delicious local cuisine or pick up a beautiful souvenir of the festival from a talented regional artisan. It’s the perfect end to another beautiful Wood Buffalo summer.
