K-Days, Then and Now

Let’s take a journey back in time to the birth of a legendary summer tradition. It all began in 1879 when the first seeds of what would later become K-Days were sown with the inception of the Edmonton Exhibition. Held by the Edmonton Agricultural Society at the first Fort Edmonton site, this inaugural fair showcased the best of what the region had to offer – from locally produced livestock, grain, and vegetables to exquisite handiwork. It was a time for the community to come together, share knowledge, and celebrate the abundance of their land.

Fast forward to the present day, and K-Days has blossomed into a monumental event, attracting over 760,000 visitors each year. It has evolved and expanded, captivating the hearts and imaginations of generations. What was once a modest gathering has transformed into a grand spectacle that showcases the vibrancy and spirit of Edmonton.

Year after year, K-Days has seen remarkable growth and popularity, drawing crowds from near and far who eagerly anticipate its arrival. People flock to experience the unique blend of thrilling rides, captivating exhibitions, and electrifying concerts that make K-Days an unforgettable summer extravaganza.

At K-Days, the experiences are as diverse as the community it serves. It’s a celebration of Edmonton’s rich heritage, its vibrant culture, and the unwavering spirit that defines its people. Whether you’re here to feast, seek thrills, or revel in the magic of live music, K-Days promises an enchanting journey that will leave you yearning for more.
