History of Northlands
Serving the Community Since 1879
On October 15 of that year, 275 people gathered in Fort Edmonton to exhibit their best livestock, grain, vegetables and crafts. A total of $173 in prizes was handed out in the process.
They were a collection of farmers, ranchers and agriculturists eager to volunteer their time for the greater good—to serve the community in a way that would benefit everyone.
Since then, Northlands has grown to serve a much bigger role in our city’s community—we’re a proud partner of the City of Edmonton, Edmonton Tourism, The Edmonton Economic Development Corporation, Chamber of Commerce and the Downtown Business Association.
We’re proud of our legacy of community service and development—one that has seen us become a more important and vital part of this city over the past 135 years.
