What Events Are Taking Place This March in Edmonton, AB?Spring is blossoming, which means winter blues and hiding from the cold indoors are soon to be things of the past. To celebrate the oncoming warmth and sunshine, why not find something fun and exciting to do? Here are four must-see March events in the city of Edmonton to add to your calendar.

Alberta Ballet in Giselle
