Christmas in summer? Absolutely! 

The Christmas Bureau of Edmonton is committed to giving back to the community every season - including summer. Our summer campaign is to increase awareness about families, individuals, youth, and seniors who are in need of assistance during the holidays, including the simplest of traditions - eating together at Christmas time.

Join us for some exciting summer activities and events starting with our Summer Christmas Carnival. 

Summer Events

Won’t be in town this summer? We got you covered.

Donate, fundraise, or volunteer with us this summer to raise money for a number of families this season.

Not only will your support and efforts help meet the needs of your neighbours during the holidays, but prove that giving back to others is always in season (any season).
