You may remember from last week that there is a cornucopia of activities happening in Edmonton this month in the lead up to the holiday season. We had trouble narrowing down the options and because of that, the November things to do is a two part-er.
Here, in part 2, find our selections of things to do during the second half of the month, many of which are musical. Let’s dive in so you can start to sing along, dance along and let loose!
Disney on Ice: Find Your Hero
As always, Disney on Ice delivers magic! Find Your Hero is a tale on ice that blends favourite characters like Elsa, Anna, Moana, Belle and the Little Mermaid. Their adventures take courage and end in love and happiness.
This will thrill your little ones and you, too! Get your tickets to one of 9 performances happening between November 17th to the 20th at the Expo Centre.
Offspring with Simple Plan
Offspring comes to Edmonton with their Let the Bad Times Roll tour named for the album of the same name released earlier this year. If punk rock is your thing, you will want to check out this event on November 21st at Rogers Place. For a little Canadian flair, Montreal-based rockers Simple Plan appear as special guests.
Find out more and get tickets today.
Continuing on the theme of big international tours, Arcade Fire brings their WE tour to the city for one spectacular show on November 27th.
Like Simple Plan, Arcade Fire also hails from Montreal where the band was founded by Win Butler and Josh Deu. Classified as indie rock, they’re known for hits such as Everything Now and Ready to Start.

Daniel Howell: We’re All Doomed
Sharing a different take on the gloom of the current day, comedian, YouTuber and author, Daniel Howell presents We’re All Doomed so we can laugh though it.
Referring to himself less as a comedian and more as being “professionally self-deprecating”, the show is hailed as celebrating “togetherness during a difficult time” which is something we all need. See Daniel’s spin on the best in the worst of times at the Jubilee Auditorium. Tickets for the November 24th show are available now.
Favourite Canadian band, Blue Rodeo brings their brand of mellow pop country to the Jubilee Auditorium for the Many a Mile tour. Even if you are not a diehard fan, you will certainly know some of the most popular songs from this band formed by friends Jim Cuddy and Greg Keelor way back in 1984.
Hits that you’ll certainly know include Try, Lost Together and Till I Am Myself Again. Get your tickets and enjoy the old tunes and new material at one of two shows on November 18th and 19th.
All Is Bright Festival
Now in its 10th year, the All Is Bright Festival hits 124 Street for a full day of all-ages fun on November 19th. Live entertainment, axe throwing, food trucks, ice sculptures, and even horse-drawn carriage rides will keep everyone feeling festive in the lead up to the holiday season.
Be there between 4pm and 8pm to participate in this free, non-ticketed event.
Edmonton Youth Orchestra
Did you know that Edmonton has a youth orchestra!? If not, what better way to expose youngsters to the symphony and classical music than with a concert performed by their peers?
With roots reaching back to it’s founding in 1952, the Edmonton Youth Orchestra is revered as one of Canada’s best your orchestra programs. Pieces performed during the November 20th concert will include Mozart’s Impresario Overture, Bach’s Sheep May Safely Graze and Berlioz’s Roman Carnival Overture. Tickets are available now.
