The Mayor’s Celebration of the Arts


The Mayor’s Celebration of the Arts honours the valuable contributions of Edmonton’s vibrant arts and culture industry. This  prestigious event brings together artists, arts champions, the business community, sponsors, and media to acknowledge professional artists creating in Edmonton.

Since its inception, the celebration has employed and profiled more than 180 Edmonton-area professional artists, and presented awards to more than 170 awards to Edmonton-area businesses, arts and culture organizations and professional artists in recognition of the vital role they play not only in building Edmonton’s arts and culture industry, but also in positioning Edmonton as a unique city to work, live and play.

Presented by the Professional Arts Coalition of Edmonton (PACE), and produced by Catch the Keys Productions, the Mayor’s Celebration of the Arts is generously made possible by an engaged group of corporate and media sponsors. We thank them for their ongoing support, and are grateful for their investment in arts and culture in Edmonton.

Thank you to all our sponsors.
