Experience the wonder of the midway at K-Days

Edmonton’s extravaganza of rides, games, music, food and adventure. The rides and games alone will leave you breathless and wanting more. Watch as fireworks light up the night sky and cheer for the band onstage. Savour the tangy smokiness of a perfectly barbecued rib, taste the warm sugary bliss of freshly fried donuts and bite into the gooey crispness of a candy apple.

Take the kids to Kids Town where they can see some of North America’s top entertainers for children. Discover the Indigenous Hall with authentic food, shopping and entertainment. Head to the Mainstage for a killer lineup of concerts. Then there's Klondike Park, the Agriculture Hall, or the Maker Faire... and that's just the beginning. There’s something for everyone at Edmonton’s incredible K-Days!


K-Days began over 130 years ago as the Edmonton Exhibition. Originally held by the Edmonton Agricultural Society at the original Fort Edmonton site, the exhibition was a celebration of technology and innovation in the late 1800s. People travelled from all over to experience the exhibition and see the latest advances in agriculture, industry and science.

With rising interest in the Wild West and Alberta’s heritage in the 1960s, the exhibition expanded its focus to blend modern innovation with historical tribute. As a nod to the history of the Canadian Gold Rush in Edmonton, the exhibition was renamed “Klondike Days”. Through the renaming of the exhibition to the current K-Days, the event has always served as a gathering place and celebration of summer for Northern Alberta.
