For the first time, Fort Edmonton Park is keeping its doors open past the summer season. This fall, Fort Edmonton Park invites visitors to gather and explore life through the diversity of First Nations’ and Métis peoples at the new signature exhibit, the Indigenous Peoples Experience. In addition, patrons can learn about early settlers and the fur trade by touring the 1846 Fort.

The Indigenous Peoples Experience will remain open to the public until December 19th with extended weekend hours on Saturdays and Sundays from noon – 4 p.m. Tickets must be purchased online. Streetcar transportation will be available for visitors to and from the area. All other areas of Fort Edmonton Park will remain closed for the season including the midway, 1920 Street, 1905 Street and 1885 Street.  

The exhibit explores cultures of First Nations and Métis peoples while encouraging visitors to seek out the truths as lived by Indigenous peoples before and after Canada became a country. The Indigenous Peoples Experience was created through consultation with MOU Partners, the Métis Nation of Alberta and the Confederacy of Treaty Six First Nations, alongside Elders, community members, artisans, creators, and musicians. 

As a bonus for visiting this Fall, each ticket holder for the Indigenous Peoples Experience and Fort Fall Opening will receive one free general admission ticket of equal or lesser value for the 2022 summer season.

The front entry café and wagon rides will also be operational. Wagon ride tickets are $5 per person 3 and over (under 3 is free). Tickets are available online only so purchase before you arrive. Tickets to the park can be purchased online at fortedmontonpark.ca.
