Ederlezi Festival

 —  —

Riverdale Hall , 9231 100 Ave , Edmonton

Please join us in Riverdale on May 5 for a free concert and dance party with Gadjo Collective to celebrate Ederlezi, a mid-spring festival. From ancient times, wherever humans have lived, we have celebrated the arrival of spring and summer. Ederlezi is a Romani mid spring festival when everything comes alive after the bitter winter. Come join us as we celebrate the escape from the winters grip. Come dance to Balkan beats and Hotclub Swing . Make your wish and tie it to the wishing tree, revel in the excitement and elegance of the fire performers and dance the night away The evening will be a free, unticketed event thanks to the collaboration of the Riverdale Community League, the Edmonton Arts Council and Gadjo Collective. All are welcome. There will be a cash bar with money going to the Riverdale Community League. After long weeks of cold weather, I think we are all very ready for a mid-spring party! Hope to see you there!
