Edson has always been known for its vibrant arts community. The Edson Summer Pavilion Series will showcase local talents and put our new pavilion to work. The goal of the series is to provide family friendly shows at no cost to the public.
The three main concerts will be Rockin’ the Park, The Harvest Jam and An Evening of Bluegrass. In addition, a theatre presentation is being planned. All of these events will feature local musicians, actors, artists and entertainers. The town is also working with Creative Campus to bring in up to four travelling shows featuring artists from the Yellowhead corridor.
The shows will be promoted as family events and will include entertainment specifically for kids. There are also plans on providing free juice and snacks to make it a truly no cost event for everyone to enjoy.
The Edson Summer Pavilion Series is a joint venture between the Town of Edson, the Edson Rotary Club, Creative Campus, Edson’s arts community, local service groups and Edson businesses.
The Summer Shows will begin in mid June and conclude in early September with one major event each month.
