Fort Edmonton Park first opened in May of 1974 and has grown to become home to more than 80 historical buildings set in four distinct eras of Edmonton’s history.
A historically-themed attraction offering authentic, immersive, memorable and fun experiences to a broad range of audiences, the Park is open to the public from the May long-weekend to the end of September as well as for a variety of holidays and special occasions. Fort Edmonton Park is also open to private parties and functions throughout the year.
Key to the Park’s operations is its living-history museum component, which includes numerous historic buildings and artifacts (including a detailed reconstruction of the Hudson Bay Trading Fort circa 1846). The museum is animated in the summer through the talents and expertise of costumed interpreters and volunteers. Amenities and attractions at the Park include: period transportation (streetcars and horse-drawn rides), an on-site full service boutique hotel, a 1920s Midway (including a ferris wheel, carousel, fun house, Chair-o-Planes and games of skill and chance) and a state of the art 4D theatre, in the guise of a splendiferous 1920s vaudeville stage.
