Sustainival Event

EDMONTON, April 10, 2017

Sustainival, the World’s First Green Carnival, is coming to Edmonton for the FIRST TIME on a large scale in June!!! You will find us in South Edmonton Common in the Servus Credit Union Corporate Office parking lot from June 8-11, 2017. We feature many exhilarating games, attractions and carnival rides – all powered by renewable energy! This unique carnival provides an experiential public education platform that celebrates energy literacy, sustainability, and clean-technologies.. oh and FUN at epic proportions.

Sustainival is FREE to attend. There isn’t a gate admission. You can check out all the entertainment, educational exhibits and games, Green Marketplace and so much more…. FREE of charge. Fees will apply for carnival rides, carnival games and the Electric Drift Trikes.

Get ready to take part in the Green Beast Eco Challenge at Sustainival! What is that you ask?!?! It is an educational challenge that transforms the entire Sustainival midway into a giant live-action board game, where participants compete for cool prizes in an ‘Amazing-Race’-style contest of stamina and eco-learning. The very popular Green Beast Eco Challenge will run every day of the event! All you have to do is buy a Day Pass to the event and you will automatically be asked if you want to participate! Before you know it you will be riding all the rides, playing all the games and talking to all the cool local groups set up at the event to solve the puzzle. Did we mention PRIZES?!? It is a really great way to spend the day!

A long time staple event in the Fort McMurray area, Sustainival’s Green Carnival and the Green Beast Eco Challenge will run for the 6th time in Fort McMurray as the region’s largest annual event in 2017. The 2016 event drew over 20,000 attendees, about 25% of the regional population. The success of the event in Fort McMurray has allowed Sustainival Alberta (an Alberta based not-for-profit) with the support of the City of Edmonton and other local organizations and businesses, to come to Edmonton! Most of the Sustainival team live and work in Edmonton year round so we are very excited and proud to be running Sustainival in our home city this year!

Key sponsors for the 2017 event are the City of Edmonton, Epcor, Alberta Beverage Container Recycling Corporation, Servus Credit Union, Green Transport and Mammoet, among others. Our sponsors allow us to bring the magic to you. Thank goodness for them!
