          I think it is cultural. I find when Asians say ” Please write more”, they are complimenting. When North Americans say it, it is being demanding. Same words, different message. I find this stuff interesting. But both of you are correct. Nice website.

      So basically nothing happens in Edmonton. So disappointed with this “city”.

      November 20, 2014 at 4:34 PM
      1. Tara Simon

        Your comment made me do a bit of research.
        1. I compared tourist attractions in Calgary listed in this site – http://www.todocanada.ca/things-to-do-incalgary/ to that in ours – http://www.todocanada.ca/Things+to+do+Attractions+in+Edmonton/. If you see objectively, there is nothing more in Calgary, that is not there in Edmonton.

        2. I did the same with weekend activities – compared Toronto activities with Edmonton. I believe there are enough cultural events & other activities [with respect to the population that Edmonton/capital region has ] to keep the event and activity seekers happy. You should keep in mind that Toronto/GTA has ~7 times the population of our capital region.

        IMHO each place is unique in its own way and grass is always greener on the other side.
        Enjoy your weekend in Edmonton!

          I agree. But the grass only “looks” greener on the other side is what u mean. Nevertheless. Agreed!

      This website is getting more and more thorough every time I visit it. The only things that seem to be missing are some of the more events for the more local scenes. And while it would be pretty hard to cover all of them, having a page or linking to the venues would be a great addition. Things such as open mic nights(ex. Arcadia), live local music(wunderbar), poetry nights(Ex. Tuesdays at Rouge Lounge), Story Slams (3rd wednesday of every month at The Mercury Room) or local comedy nights(Ex. Sunday at Empress) that are going on around the city in the various venues/bars. There is a lot going on and having a compilation of all of them would be very useful. Not that there isn’t already enough stuff on here to fill up every night of the week.

      February 3, 2015 at 3:03 PM
      1. todocanada (Listing owner)

        Thank you for taking time to comment. As you rightly said, one of the reasons for not adding local scene is that there are so many events. We are compiling an article on ‘an evening in Edmonton’ which will include links to local event scene in addition to activities from a tourism perspective.
        All suggestions are welcome.

      awesome webpage! Lots of events. Only boring people can say there is nothing to do in Edmonton. There is always something going on here 😀

      March 2, 2015 at 11:02 PM
      1. Gerald

        Only people from small towns would say Edmonton has a lot to do. Restaurants are expensive while chained restaurants and fast food dominate the market. Grocery is expensive. Anybody from big cities are used to the many free and big events (not those that only a hundred ppl show up), whereas here every even small event costs a fortune. Shopping is limited to the big box stores at South Commons and WEM which is really the same old stores you can find across Canada. Whyte Av is a joke when compared to Robson or even Main in Vancouver or Yonge or Queen in Toronto. Yes I’m gonna be told to go back if I don’t like it here (I wish), but to suggest there is a lot going on that you can just walk into like you can in a real big city is just absurd.

        March 24, 2015 at 11:54 PM
        1. David

          Well… Try to make some lemonade out of lemons. Complaining about the city and never getting out and doing something about it will never bring about the change you may desire. Maybe try getting involved with an event / initiative / festival / etc. and you may find out that you can have a lot of fun in Edmonton. Life is too short not to take a stride down the “path not taken”.

      Ughh please dont make edmonton sound like it has alot to do….majority of this shit here is boring family crap…for hillbillies and farmers….where is anything cool and hip to bring out single young people? ?

      August 15, 2015 at 12:49 PM
      1. Tyler

        Try a meet up group. There is something for all interests. Edmonton has a ton of things to do. Cool and hip young people are not looking on todoCanada for fun. They are usually connected through friends and word of mouth. Unless you have no friends, then sorry, cannot help you there..I have a family.

        August 22, 2015 at 1:31 PM

      Wow! Your site is very informative! It has more events and details in an easy to find format then any other site I have used. I have lived in Edmonton for quite awhile and didn’t even know about some of the attractions!
      Just wondering if you can add more for things to do during the week? We are always trying to find new and interesting things to do with the kids!!

      Excellent site! Keep up the great work. After reading the comments I see the old ” you can keep some of the people happy some of the time” people if your not happy with what’s going on…. Change it! Oh and Edmonton does not have the same number of people as TO and Van we are a different place different province and no one can make you happy but you.

      This site is very informative and varied. I visit weekly to find things for my family to do. We are from Toronto and considering the population difference and the high volume of young families, we have no complaints with Edmonton’s offerings. Thanks for compiling such a useful resource! There is always a way to find joy, but you have to be willing to look!

      Caught part of a tv commercial for an all-night contemporary art festival in Edmonton this weekend, but several searches turn up nothing about it. Too bad, we’re up in the mountains trying to decide whether to come down to Edmonton or Calgary for a few days, guess we’ll go to Calgary. It would still be nice to get info if this is a regular event because we might be in the area next year.

      This website is great! I found this in summer time this year, even if I have lived here for 4 years! The info is very helpful to immigrants to have fun here and enjoy the life in Edmonton.

      For lots of fun and exercise. Where you can meet lots of people. There is salsa nights. Lots of music variety. Plus, you can make it cheap if you choose not to drink. Or if you have money have some drinks and have fun!
      Lots of beautiful single people!

      This website is fantastic! There’s so many things I’ve found going on in my city that I would not have known about had it not been for this website.
      Keep up the great work!!

      Great site to plan outings with our grandchildren and guests who visit Edmonton. Keep up the good work. Would you be able to add bowling alley sites with times of operation to the list of family activities?

      Great site! A lot of the things I want to go to aren’t accessible to me but I keep checking and occasionally there are things that are time/place accessible.

      I have a good idea though. Why don’t all the people here who say there is nothing to do here all start a little clique. The Whine Experts or something, then you can have your own event listed here. Honestly, they have so much here listed and you’re like spoiled kids who only want cake for breakfast. It doesn’t matter what else you offer (how bout Cornflakes AND $1,000,000?) they say “no…don’t wannit, want cake!”

      From Ontario and visiting my son in Thorsby. What a wonderful sit which summarizes everything happening and something we may want to do. In fact we are going to see the Oil Kings play medicine Hat tomorrow night, and of course found on this site.

      Great site. Here for the weekend on a layover and if I don’t get out it certainly isn’t because the options are not a available. Appreciate the infom

      Great web! Based on it, i can plan my weekend and do something interesting and fun with my family.

      i know this is a for-profit company, and you have overhead/bills to pay but the ads and pop-ups on here are becoming annoying. How much is too much?

      I echo Rhonda’s sentiments above Jimmy. Have fun in Ontario. And if you get bored in Barrie, I recommend looking into typing and spelling classes. Failing that, you could at least Google the spelling for your home town. Good luck to you! Feel free to visit again – for the Fringe, Folk Fest, or any other of our world-famous Edmonton events. Just leave the negativity in Barrie please.

      Relative to other sites, this one is a gold mine. That being said, I’m not interested in most of the things on this site. If I come across events or companies/bars that have special things going on, can I send them your way? What about legions and other specific groups? I’m sure there are others whose interests lie elsewhere and I’d be willing to help expand the options for them.
