As a child, you couldn't wait for wintertime. You ran outside in the first snowfall and caught snowflakes on your tongue. You couldn't wait until you had enough snow for snowmen and forts. And when the neighbourhood rink was finally ready for skating, you zipped around the ice like a speed skater, feeling invincible.
Rediscover that joy at the Silver Skate Festival, an annual spectacle of sport, art, and recreation in Alberta's capital city. Glide across the city's largest skating pond at Hawrelak Park. Marvel at snow sculptures created by talented artists. Root for the athletes in the Edmonton Winter Triathalon (or compete yourself). Delight in your children as they take their first steps in snowshoes. This February, bring your family to Hawrelak Park and rediscover your love for all things winter.
The mission of the Silver Skate Festival Society is to provide a free family-oriented winter celebration blending sport, recreation, arts and culture, showcasing various skating disciplines and promoting outdoor activities in Edmonton.
