Glass of the Sask returns June 27!

The “Glass of the Sask" is a celebration of things that are uniquely Edmonton.

This summer, we a​re partnering with more local restaurants and events to celebrate some of the things that make Edmonton special, like the North Saskatchewan River, which is the source of Edmonton’s drinking water.

Mark your calendars for June - 27 to take home your own Glass of the Sask as we kick off with a pop up shop!

Where: Edmonton Arts Council Shop and Services in Churchill Square

When: June 27 – July 4 or while supplies last.


From the river to your table 

Just like the food, the tap water served at these restaurants is high quality and great tasting. Edmonton’s drinking water comes from the North Saskatchewan River, which is bor​n in the Canadian Rocky Mountains. The final product is treated for up to 12 hours at one of our water treatment plants before being delivered to over one million taps in Edmonton and surrounding communities.​

As water experts and enthusiasts, we're pretty proud of our safe, healthy and great-tasting drinking water and the beautiful river it comes from.​
