Big news from Heart of the City.

Heart of the City is making a movie! It will be a short documentary, to be specific. We intend to include as many memorable moments from over the years as possible. We will also include community members, community sponsors, and previous board members who have helped in the continuing success of Heart of the City Festival Society.

We are always accepting new members and volunteers. If you would like to be a part of this project we would love to hear from you! Our goal is to premiere the short film next summer and we can’t wait to update you along the journey.

The board has been busy with this year’s theme, Reboot, and would like to extend a thank you to our central artist for 2023, Elliot Taylor. Check out our website and socials to see Elliot’s amazing artwork!

We would also like to thank The Canadian Native Friendship Centre for inviting us to their Indigenous Peoples Day festival at Borden Park on June 17th. We had an absolute blast at our tie-dye workshop. Despite the rain and the overcast weather, over 150 Heart of the City t-shirts were tie-dyed!

We also had the opportunity to pop up at the Edmonton Downtown Farmers Market on July 1st. We spent the day on the second floor next to the Indigenous Artists Collective Market crafting and creating photo booth props for the market’s selfie booth. We are always so grateful for the ongoing support from our fellow community organizations.

We have so much more in the works, and as always, we are looking to add local and emerging artists and volunteers to our roster for upcoming events. You will find all updates and upcoming events on our website and social media. Our website is, and we’re @heartcityfest on FacebookTwitter, and Instagram.

Jacqueline is the Producer and Director of Marketing and Communications with HOTC.
