With the long weekend coming up it is hardly surprising that there is another great festival happening in Edmonton! Lucky for us, it's very close to the hotel! The Campus Tower Suite Hotel is the perfect base to explore world heritage in Edmonton this weekend. For those looking to enjoy the sunshine in the park, the walk is about 20 minutes from the hotel to Hawrelak Park where the festival takes place. There is no public parking available in Hawrelak Park for the festival, but ETS service will run several Park & Ride locations in easy walking distance from our Edmonton hotel near the University of Alberta! For more information about the festival and how to get there, be sure to check out the Heritage Festival website.
Heritage Festival is not the only event for August in Edmonton, there are many other attractions in our beautiful city at this time of year! www.edmonton.ca has a list of what's going on, but here's a quick list of what's in walking distance from our hotel.
