Downtown Edmonton

Downtown Edmonton continues to transform, building a better and more family-friendly gathering place for citizens and visitors. Sir Winston Churchill Square (affectionately referred to by Edmontonians as “the Square”) and City Hall Plaza form the core downtown festival and celebration space in central Edmonton. 

We hope to see you in the Square!
