The Downtown Spark festival is back for 2022, filling Downtown Edmonton streets with whimsical international art you have to see with your own eyes to believe! From May 26 to June 5, you’ll be able to see huge “Tentacles” coming out of the Enbridge Centre, a giant monstrous “Chomper” taking a bite out of the Yellowhead Brewery, and be able to play on a new “Urban Jungle” in Alex Decoteau Park.

During the Festival, there will be daily events, buskers and food trucks in Alex Decoteau Park, plus two street party events on the weekends:

Bark and Brew | May 28 & 29 from 1 pm – 6 pm
This dog-friendly party in the park on May 28 will include street performers, a doggie photo booth, caricature artists, live music, dog training demos, food trucks and more! On May 29, there will be a beer garden and more dog friendly activities.

Downtown Spark Block Party | June 4 from 5 pm – 10 pm
Join the party on Rice Howard Way with an outdoor show by Rueben and the Dark with the Bullhorn Singers, plus special guests Maddie Storvold and Cypress.
