In 1795, on the banks of the North Saskatchewan River, the Hudson’s Bay Company established a trading post known as Edmonton House, aka Fort Edmonton. It was built in our beautiful River Valley on what is now Treaty 6 land. Indigenous peoples, fur traders and settlers would meet there to trade, barter and buy goods that would help them survive winter in the region.
What better place for us to set up a Winter Market than right in the middle of Hawrelak Park by the river?
Come down to the Silver Linings tent and browse stalls filled with unique handmade crafts, art and products created by local Edmonton artists, bakers and crafters while listening to beautiful, live music by local young musicians and singers. Then enjoy all the fun FREE activities our festival has to offer for the whole family!
Entrance to the Market is free.
