Current News & Events
The Callingwood Farmers’ Market is celebrating 39 years of supporting local vendors and cultivating community in the Edmonton area. The 2023 season opens on Sunday, May 7, featuring over 125 vendors offering homemade, locally grown and handcrafted products. The first 100 people to visit the Callingwood tent will receive a free reusable bag, market bucks and goodies from one of our vendors.
As one of Edmonton’s original and most extensive outdoor Sunday markets, the Callingwood Farmers’ Market is a vibrant hub where people come face-to-face with the farmers, bakers, chefs, and artisans who personally produce their goods. It’s an opportunity for people to know where their food comes from, hear the stories behind the products they purchase, and genuinely support local businesses from a grassroots level.
The market is open every Sunday from 10AM-3PM from May7-October 8, 2023. The Wednesday mini market will begin June 21 and run every week from 12PM-4PM until September 27, 2023. Located in the covered courtyard (entrances near Safeway and Dairy Queen) and the East parking lot facing 177 Street, 6655-178 Street at The Marketplace at Callingwood Shopping Centre.
Despite the rapid growth of other farmers’ markets in the Edmonton region, the Callingwood Farmers’ Market remains one of the best in the city, according to vendors and shoppers. We invite shoppers, rain, or shine, to experience the bustling market with live entertainment, kid-friendly activities, food trucks and vendors.

The City of Edmonton has some difficult budget conversations happening over the next few weeks, and decisions made will inform City development and growth for the next 4 years. One scheduled topic is the city-wide availability of pool space and aquatics programming (swimming lessons, open swim times, competitive swimming/diving, and more). With multiple Recreation Centre projects in the planning phase or already under construction, the topic of pool space and aquatics programming capacity city-wide will be discussed.
We ask that you take a moment to complete this survey to provide feedback to City Administration on the current demand for aquatics programming, city-wide. With the capital budget proposing the elimination of some of the aquatics space at the Lewis Farms Recreation Centre, your voice can make a difference.

The Mass Transit Network will change how Edmontonians move around the city, by bringing high speed bus transit to parts of the city where the LRT doesn’t go. Don’t worry, we aren’t changing the LRT lines. Instead we are adding special bus routes that work more like an LRT by running in dedicated lanes, using heated stations and getting priority over cars at intersections. These routes will connect the LRT lines to each other and serve new locations along the way.
The City is looking for feedback on Non-LRT Mass Transit approaches and technologies for the future (10-15 years). Your league and members of your community can get involved from October 3 - 28, 2022 through our online survey at: engaged.edmonton.ca/MassTransit.
We also are having four online workshops. Each workshop will dive into the details of a particular corridor. Please select the corridor (or date) you would like to join and a calendar invite will be sent to you with the Zoom link:

Side By Side Campaign
The City's newest Vision Zero educational campaign, Side By Side campaign celebrates all the ways Edmontonians move around our streets and seeks to positively influence attitudes and behaviours around travelling safely together. Over the coming weeks and months, the City will introduce educational resources that highlight ways to keep each other safe on the street.
First up, the focus will be to increase understanding and awareness of the Safe Passing Distance Bylaw that came into effect last September.
When we support active transportation like biking and walking, we reduce vehicles and traffic congestion on our streets and support physical activity. This makes Edmonton better for everyone.
Currently, some Edmontonians don’t feel safe when biking, walking, and rolling around Edmonton. We want to help Edmontonians travel safely together.
Edmonton’s Safe Passing Distance Bylaw provides clear guidance for how much room people driving need to leave to safely pass people biking on the street. Passing at a safe distance helps make sure everyone gets to their destination incident-free.
Four things to keep in mind when passing people cycling and scooting on the street:

Kids On Track is a Christian non-profit located in West Edmonton. We are a community building organization that provides hope, direction, and ongoing support for children, youth, and their parents. Educational, social, and recreational elements are combined to deliver well-rounded programs. We cultivate relationships with participants encouraging character and leadership development, social skills, and a healthy lifestyle. We strive to support families that have limited opportunities due to various challenges.
Traditionally, Kids On Track has been able to offer day-camps for children all summer long. This summer we have sadly had to suspend the day camp program but we began looking at what we CAN do. So, our Active Families program is EXPANDING! This is a chance for parents to get active and get creative WITH their children, fostering a stronger family relationship through shared experiences. We will be offering four activity slots per week M-Th as well as two Saturdays a month. There's something for everyone!
Activities like container gardening, nature games, bike days, craft days, and creative outside games will all be a part of the summer. We will provide all equipment and supplies. We will align with all the guidelines provided from the province of Alberta including social distancing.
We know that these last few months have been rough on teenagers. Their mental health has taken a hit as well as their activity levels. We are excited to announce that the Shift Youth program will be offering outdoor recreation activities four days a week M-Th, with a morning time slot and an afternoon time slot.
Activities like bubble soccer, giant games, and high ropes are just a couple of the amazing activities our team has planned. The team is working hard to ensure that all activities will align with the guidelines provided from the province of Alberta including social distancing.
YMCA has recently launched “YMCA at Home”.

Stormwater Facilities have become popular recreation hotspots in Edmonton and this is not good practice. These facilities have a job to do; they are an important part of the stormwater drainage infrastructure in the city and help prevent flooding during severe weather events and by collecting run off from city streets. Water moves through these facilities throughout the year creating instability and when combined with the substances that are washed into the facility from the streets they become dangerous. Recreation on these facilities is prohibited, although it is not widely recognized. Families should find safe winter recreation alternatives. EPCOR has compiled a list of safe skating sites in Edmonton, which can be searched on our website at epcor.com/safe-rinks.
