1920s Midway - Fort Edmonton

Step back into a simpler time in the middle of the city.

Fort Edmonton is North America’s largest interactive historic park. It is a place where you can experience life as it was in the early days of the City of Edmonton through four historical periods: the fur trade days of the rustic fort, and the pioneer years of 1885, 1905 & 1920 but my favorite part is the 1920s midway. The park is run as a non-profit association by a volunteer board, and seems to be always growing and adding “new” features. The most recent of which is the midway.

The bold and colourful wood-sided shacks house simple games of skill and chance where you can win nostalgic prizes.

The kiddie rides are still operated by manpower; an attendant stands at the centre and turns a crank to rotate the ride full of happy children.

The Ferris wheel gives you a good view of the recreated, fully functioning train station and restored steam train.

There are always fun events and activities happening at Fort Edmonton – it’s a great spot to check out if you’re in Edmonton, especially in the summertime. :)
