If you haven’t experienced the Indigenous Peoples Experience at Fort Edmonton park, this fall is the perfect time to visit. While most of the park has been closed for the season, the Fort Fall opening allows guests to experience both the Indigenous People Experience and tour the authentic 1846 Fort.
Explore the rich diversity and cultural beauty of the First Nations and Métis in this stunning indoor exhibit. Opened in summer 2021, the Indigenous Peoples Experience seeks out the truths as lived by the Indigenous Peoples before and after Canada became a country. It is a beautiful space with many interactive features to explore.
The Indigenous Peoples Experience and Fort will be open every Saturday and Sunday from October 2 to December 19, 2021. Streetcar transportation will be available to take visitors through the park, plus the front entry café and wagon rides ($5 each) will also be operational. Admission tickets must be purchased online – no walk-up tickets available.
We enjoyed both experiences as part of our visit to Fort Edmonton this summer, but I feel we were rushed with so many other great things the kids were wanting to see and get to in the park. I love that the limited Fort Fall opening will allow visitors to take the time to really explore and reflect on all the thoughtful elements in this incredible space.
PLUS Your ticket purchase for the Indigenous Peoples Experience & Fort Fall opening will include a free general admission ticket (of equal or lesser value) for the 2022 summer season. Plan a visit this fall and still have all the other fun features of Fort Edmonton Park to look forward to this summer!
