Enter the Instagram contest

We’ll be giving away a $100 Edmonton Downtown Gift Card at the beginning of Downtown Dining Week. Visit @edmontondtwn on Instagram, look for the delicious #dineYEGDT posts and follow the instructions to enter to win.

Plan your visits

Are you brunching, lunching or grabbing dinner? Maybe all three? Check out all the menu offers on our Downtown Dining Week page and make a plan. You might want to check in with the restaurants ahead of time and make a reso if they are busy. Pro tip: balance your big meals with some lighter fares.

Msg the lunch crew

If you work downtown, get the crew together and meet for lunch or brunch. This way, you can fit more menu deals into the 10-day dining extravaganza.

Make a night of it

Why drive home when you don’t have to? Downtown is brimming with hotels with hot amenities. Imagine a relaxing spa day before dinner or being able to walk the pedway from your hotel to a restaurant. Or even simply having your parking included.

The Dining Week Gift Card promo is now SOLD OUT

The “buy a $100 Gift Card for $75” promo is now sold out. You can still buy a regular Gift Card for use at 60+ participating downtown businesses. We now have a note on each #dineYEGDT menu to show which restaurants accept the GIft Card.
