The festival runs from July 20-29, 2017 in Sir Winston Churchill Square.   

Interstellar Rodeo

From July 21-23, Hawrelak Park’s Heritage Amphitheatre becomes the setting for one of Edmonton’s newest music festivals. Celebrating its 6th anniversary, Interstellar Rodeo is quickly becoming the not-to-miss event of summer. And once again, the line-up doesn’t disappoint this year with a great assortment of performers from a variety of genres.
