Barre Favs: Summer Activities in YEG

There is no better time to be an Edmontonian than summer! The electric energy and fun atmosphere are just a few perks that come along with being known as Festival City. We are buzzing with excitement and big plans for the coming months. Read below to see where you may find your instructors on a warm day, when they are not tending the barre.

"My favourite summer activity is going for strolls around the city with my pooch, Marvin. We spend a lot of time at the off leash playing in the river!" - Elissa

"During the summer I love to go standup paddle boarding at Lake Summerside." - Megan

"Does sitting on a patio drinking chilled white wine, laughing loudly and catching some rays with my girls count? If not, then I'd say anything in the water, time on the lake, swimming, paddling, boating. I love the water, and if I could, I'd be in the ocean." - Kirsten

"Anything and everything with food: heritage days, taste of Edmonton, or just hitting up a patio in general!" - Lauren

" I have a family cabin out by Red Deer so on the weekends my family and I like to head out of the city to enjoy some time spent outdoors. We love to waterski and wakeboard and always enjoy the much needed family time at the beach during the day and by the fire at night. If we're in the city, my husband and I love to walk down 124th street with our pup, Bax and grab dinner at one of YEG's many food trucks! " - Jill

"Day trips to the mountains! Alberta is such a beautiful place and summer is the perfect time to go adventuring!" - Katarina

"Enjoy all the activities that YEG has to offer! All the festivals and street events. " - Hannah

"Definitely backyard fire pits!" - Jaime

"My favorite summer activity to do in and around the city is to go to the old strathcona farmers market and then have dessert somewhere after." - Emily

"My favourite summer activity would be to hop on my bike and go exploring my city. Some great tunes, the sunshine and a bit of a sweat is what I look forward to when the summer (finally!) arrives." - Erika

"I love going to check out different festivals and farmers markets in the city - there are actually so many!" - Michelle

"Being a mom of three kids, we hit up as many different playgrounds with spray parks, and outdoor pools around the city all summer! Perfect way to stay cool and have fun!" - Christy

"Floating down the Pembina River. Fun fact: the large s'well fits a whole bottle of wine!" - Lindsey

" Walking to the downtown farmers market, grabbing a coffee and walking around browsing the desserts, summer fruits and vegetables. Perfect morning!" - Carla

"It's a tie between checking out all the amazing festivals Edmonton has to offer and hanging out at all our beautiful parks with my girls. Summer is my favorite time to be an Edmontonian!" - Jessica

"Taking my commuter bike to get around the city opposed to driving. Being close to downtown I might head to the downtown farmer's market or to North 53 for the best cocktails our city has to offer." - Erin
