Light the Midway

Something amazing is happening in Edmonton’s River Valley!

Fort Edmonton Park is expanding to create a world-class, internationally acclaimed living history experience. Fort Edmonton Park will re-open in 2021 with the expansion of the 1920’s-style Midway, as well as a brand new Indigenous Peoples Experience, a new front entry plaza, guest services area and expansion of the Hotel Selkirk.

As part of this incredible project, Fort Edmonton Foundation is raising money to support expansions and enhancements to the Historical 1920’s Johnny J. Jones Midway. We need your help to meet our goal of $1 Million to light up the midway and keep it lit for years to come!

Be Part of Igniting the Spirit of the Edmonton Community! 

Historical midways are known for being illuminated by lights – from overhead strings, to dazzling lights on rides, to brightly lit stalls and games. We are inviting Edmontonians to help us Light the Midway at Fort Edmonton Park by buying symbolic bulbs. It is going to be a historical moment in Edmonton’s River Valley when the Midway lights up for the first time in 2021 and stays illuminated for everyone to enjoy! 

The new Midway at Fort Edmonton Park will be Powered by Community! 

There are 20,000 lights that need to be illuminated throughout the Midway including the games and rides. Buy a bulb for you and your family members. Dedicate a bulb to a loved one. Donate a bulb in memory of a friend or a gift a bulb to celebrate a birthday. 

Or help us achieve our goal by joining our Luminary Fundraising Team and raise money with your friends, neighbours and coworkers to buy a string of bulbs or even illuminate an entire section of the Midway. Create fundraising challenges or get the kids to take part in our ‘Beam Team’ junior fundraising opportunities.
