The Shopping Indoor Market Edmonton, Expo Centre and Exhibition Grounds. Daily noon to 1000 PM
K-Days began over 130 years ago as the Edmonton Exhibition. Originally held by the Edmonton Agricultural Society at the original Fort Edmonton site, the exhibition was a celebration of technology and innovation in the late 1800s. People travelled from all over to experience the exhibition and see the latest advances in agriculture, industry and science.
With rising interest in the Wild West and Alberta’s heritage in the 1960s, the exhibition expanded its focus to blend modern innovation with historical tribute. As a nod to the history of the Canadian Gold Rush in Edmonton, the exhibition was renamed “Klondike Days”. Through the renaming of the exhibition to the current K-Days, the event has always served as a gathering place and celebration of summer for Northern Alberta.
