Our Uniformed Finest Weekend

Edmontonians owe a great deal to the men and women in uniform that have helped to build, protect, and serve this City throughout the eras. This weekend we pay tribute to the first-responders, medical professionals, police, firefighters, soldiers, and all community-minded citizens. Their hard work and sacrifice has maintained order and kept us safe, healthy, and free.
