Edmonton is full of unique neighbourhoods to visit – and the 4th Street Promenade has a well-deserved place on that list. Deep in the heart of Downtown Edmonton, the community offers sophistication as an ever-changing destination for tourists and locals alike. Located in the historic Warehouse District, it is home to many iconic buildings and is the heart of a growing residential neighbourhood.
Businesses range from technology startups to real estate developers to advertising agencies and more.
Formerly a neglected spur off the rail yards, 4th Street Promenade has gained a reputation as a showcase for Downtown revitalization and is close to many area attractions including Rogers Place (home of the NHL’s Edmonton Oilers), the Art Gallery of Alberta (AGA), the Royal Alberta Museum (RAM), the Neon Sign Museum, Alley of Light, Downtown hotels, the River Valley, and several parks including family-and dog-friendly Alex Decoteau Park.
The street is home to some of the city’s award-winning restaurants, pubs, and shops. Some of the favourites include Corso 32, Kelly’s Pub, Credo Coffee, DOSC, Tiffin, The Helm Clothing, deVine Wines & Spirits, A Bite of Brazil by Pampa, Tony the Tailor, Ono Poke, Cask & Barrel, Cavern, Mercer Tavern and many more.
Aspiring to be a distinguished destination to live, work and play, 4th Street Promenade is one of the most exciting areas in Edmonton. Once you arrive, you’ll want to stay and enjoy quality time.
A place to live, work & play!
104th Street Action Committee
The 104th Street Action Committee consists of members of the community who have gathered together to advocate issues on the resident’s and businesses’ behalf and tackle the issues which concern the community the most. They have formed close working relationships with Edmonton Police Services to keep the street safe and with Capital City Cleanup to keep the street clean. Their sense of community has been fostered and strengthened through the development of closer ties with the Downtown Business Association (DBA), the Downtown Edmonton Community League (DECL) and City Council.

Al Fresco on 4th is a weekly community celebration on Summer Saturdays which hosts a curated vendor market, sidewalk patios, business activations and community programming that is family and pet friendly in efforts to continue to create a vibrant Downtown and animated 104th Street!
The Neon Sign Museum features restored neon signs from Edmonton’s past. It is the first of its kind in Canada, features a collection of functional historic signs that tell a story about Edmonton’s neon past. The City of Edmonton has collected many neon signs, all of which have been restored and installed on the east wall of the TELUS building and the south wall of the Mercer Warehouse building on 104th Street and 104th Avenue. The Museum is outdoors and is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. No admission is required.
Housed within the oldest standing brick school in Alberta, Edmonton Public Schools Archives & Museum (McKay Avenue School) offers curriculum-based, hands-on programs for students; a museum highlighting the history of Edmonton Public Schools and Alberta’s early political history; and archives where historically significant documents are preserved for future generations.
Edmonton is known as the Festival City, and there is no better place than Downtown to experience those festivals. A summer weekend doesn’t seem to go by without a festival taking place. From the Ice on Whyte Festival with giant ice carvings in January to the Interstellar Rodeo of Folk and Rock music to Shakespeare, poetry, pride and even a raft race down the river – the festivities never stop.
Edmonton International Fringe Festival in mid-August. It’s the largest fringe festival in North America, bringing in more than 800 performers, with 200 shows during the 10-day event. With 18 hours of summertime daylight, you can catch a play or two, then enjoy a pint before the sun even thinks of setting.
Alley of Light
The Places and the City of Edmonton launched a public art initiative called the Alley of Light Art Boxes in February 2017. This project-particularly captivating at night- is an installation of ten illuminated boxes on the historic Armstrong Block building (south wall 10125th – 104th Street) that displays artwork on a rotating basis.
