A Large, Versatile and Easily Accessible Destination
Northlands grounds present enormous opportunities for events of almost every size. Beyond our three key venues (Northlands Coliseum, Edmonton EXPO Centre, Northlands Park Racetrack & Casino) our grounds include ample outdoor space for parking and/or outdoor exhibitions, concerts or events, as well as Klondike Park, a shaded outdoor area perfect for corporate picnics or other similar gatherings.
This 18,500 seat coliseum was named the 23rd busiest arena in the world (the 3rd busiest in Canada) by Pollstar in 2014 & Canada’s “Top Spot” by Venues Today. Perfect for concerts, sports events and unique entertainment spectaculars, Northlands Coliseum is also an ideal place for additional exhibition space and plenary sessions too big for the Edmonton EXPO Centre.
Northlands Park Racetrack & Casino
The home of the Canadian Derby hosts live racing (Thoroughbred & Harness) almost all-year round and features a wide variety of dining and hosting options, including two restaurants, two lounges and four private suites: Colours Restaurant, Uplinks, Playbook Lounge, “Aces” Sports Lounge, Chairman’s Suite, Directors’ Suite, Sky Paddock Suite and Paddock Theatre.
Klondike Park is an ideal outdoor setting for team building events and group barbecues. This outdoor event space offers a covered area to host your food and beverage functions and a shaded grassy park activity area. There is also easy access to washrooms and parking.
The Northlands Urban Farm is dedicated to producing local and sustainable food in the middle of an urban setting. The farm is the result of special partnership between Northlands and Lactuca Corp.
The Northlands Urban Farm offers a unique opportunity for our urban guests to experience a commercial farm. It also demonstrates how otherwise vacant land can be used to grow nutritious and sustainable food for our community. In addition to vegetable crops, the farm houses an apiary featuring four beehives that not only produce honey, but also highlight the vitally important role pollination plays in our food supply.
We would be pleased to arrange a customized tour of our Urban Farm and beekeeping operation for your entire group or as part of a spousal program.
Cooking demonstrations lead by our culinary team are another great option. We are happy to do our best to facilitate whatever team building exercise or spousal activity you may have in mind.
