We attended a concert at the theatre and then the hotel for drinks. There is so much to see and do. Get on the mailing list and see everything from jazz, to movies to dinner out.... a great addition to the City!

Cant say enough about the amazing place. You step back in time with buildings and period actors. Charming might be the word fir it. Also loved attending the Gaelic Gathering and listening to the Bagpipe competitions. We try to go to the Fort at least 3 times a year. 😁

We had the pleasure of attending during Halloween . The evening was full of goblins and excitement. The setting in the historic venue took you back in time. We loved it.

I remember the days when Ft Edmonton Park bustled and functioned as a city within itself. The comforting scent of fresh baked peanut butter cookies drew you ever closer to the bakery, and you could get served at the saloon. Now it seems to be more of a make your own merry ghost town. While the staff are still friendly... More
