The Edmonton EXPO Centre’s 522,000 square feet of space offers a plethora of alternatives and thrilling prospects. We think it’s commendable that they realize that they are on Treaty 6 territory and in Métis Nation of Alberta Region 4. They recognize this area as the historic home of numerous Indigenous Peoples, including the Cree, Blackfoot, Métis, Nakota Sioux, Dene, Saulteaux, Anishinaabe, and Inuit, whose histories, languages, and cultures continue to impact their thriving community.

They have hosted over 400 events and 1.3 million guests every year throughout the years. The Edmonton EXPO Centre is Western Canada’s largest show venue. The Edmonton EXPO Centre was designed for versatility and great size, so the possibilities for one-of-a-kind events are endless—from the largest trade exhibits to live entertainment, athletic events, conferences, and more, you can experience it all at the Edmonton EXPO Centre.

They have established themselves as a valuable community partner and neighbor. The Edmonton EXPO Centre, which is owned by the City of Edmonton and administered by Explore Edmonton, exists to bring beneficial environmental, economic, and social benefits to the Edmonton region, including more than $74.4 million in economic impact in 2019.

Currently, the events that are booming on The Edmonton Expo Centre are all about weddings, especially since February has just passed. This rate will continue because summer is one of the best wedding seasons of the year.
