Coming to Hawlerak Park in February: Silver Skate Festival 2019

Every February, the Silver Skate Festival brings Dutch winter traditions and lots of family-friendly fun to Edmonton. From February 8th to 18th, the celebration will transform Hawlerak Park into a winter wonderland, complete with ice-skating rinks, snow-shoeing areas, and plenty of stages for live music.

Bring along kids or friends to the Silver Skate Festival to enjoy its multi-faceted entertainment and attractions. Cheer on novice athletes as they compete in ice-skating races. Cook bannock over a crackling campfire. Watch live theatre productions and musical performances. Go for a horse-drawn sleigh ride or catch a glimpse of over-the-top snow sculptures. The entertainment is virtually endless at the Silver Skate Festival. Admission is free (although donations are accepted and appreciated), so you have nothing to lose when you come and check out the fun!
