Get Involved With HOTC

Given how cold it is currently outside, it’s hard to imagine that an outdoor festival like Heart of the City (HOTC) is only several months away from showcasing in Giovanni Caboto Park (9425 109A Avenue).

If you are unfamiliar with HOTC, we are a year-round organization that promotes local and emerging artists through the curation of music and arts events, including a free, annual, family-friendly festival in central Edmonton. Together, let’s help envision, plan, and make another community celebration to remember! Our vision is to create “inspiration and opportunities through the arts” in all forms, and we see you – the downtown core – as crucial in making this event happen through your continued support.

Come join us for our Annual General Meeting on February 9th, from 3:30 – 5:30 p.m. at the Parkdale Cromdale Community Hall (11335 85 Street). We will go over our report from 2019, and elect new board members. Once the official business is finished, please share food and fellowship with an inclusive group.

If you have any questions about how to participate with the Heart of the City Festival Society of Edmonton, please contact We’re looking forward to seeing you all in the park on June 6th and 7th!

Charity Slobod is President of Heart of the City Festival (at least until after the AGM).
