Edmonton’s favourite summer fair, K-Days, asked attendees to fill out a survey to help us continue to evolve the festival. One attendee has won $10,000 for taking the survey.
Edmonton, AB: It’s been a few weeks since one of Edmonton’s most beloved annual events came to a close, but the excitement of K-Days isn’t over quite yet. During the 2019 festival, which ran from July 19 – 28, K-Days invited attendees to fill out a survey asking about the festival, their highlights, and what they’d like to see in future festivals.
During the festival, thousands of attendees filled out the survey which gave them an opportunity to win $10,000. This week, one of those attendees will be awarded a giant cheque for $10,000 by Northlands CEO Peter Male.
Please join us for the cheque presentation this Thursday, September 19.
Noon at the Northlands Urban Farm (11312 79 Street NW)
Please arrive for 11:45 a.m. to allow for time to set-up prior to the awarding of the cheque.
The 20-year-old Edmonton woman who won the $10,000 is very excited. She’s planning to use the money to take her family on a trip. She’s a fan of the midway (her favourite ride is the Zipper) and will be starting training with Chrysalis Centre for Adults with Disabilities in the fall. Come witness the cheque hand-off this Thursday!
There is much to go through in a survey of this size, but here are some quick highlights:
- The top 3 reasons guests came to K-Days were for the midway, the food, and the concert series.
- The top 3 attractions guests enjoyed while at 2019 K-Days were the concert series and performances, shopping, and the Superdogs show Pandora’s Boxes.
- Better wayfinding, shorter line-ups, and more water stations were some of the most common areas of opportunity for the 2020 edition of K-Days.
- When planning for the future, feedback included even more speciality fair food, entertainment suggestions, and more art and technology included.
Over 700,000 guests attended K-Days 2019, which featured the newly introduced Mini Makers Faire, increased cultural programs, a traveling Toy exhibit and expanded agricultural programs, including cow cuddling and several small livestock shows. Planning is now underway for the 2020 event, one that is anticipated to bring a new look and programming changes.
