2014 Heart of the City Music and Arts Festival


As you can tell from the poster below, this year’s Heart of the City Festival is on June 7 & 8, and features local and emerging artists from Edmonton. It’s free, everyone is welcome, and the only rule is you have to have a good time. So bring your friends, family, and maybe even some enemies – it’ll be a great opportunity to bury those rivalries!
