EDMONTON – There are plenty of ways to be jolly this holiday season in the city where beaches sprout accidentally in the summer and the temperature has the potential to drop to -61 with a wind chill in the winter…  

Happy 10th Anniversary to the Royal Bison Craft Fair! Weekend number two is December 1st – 3rd and is undoubtedly your best bet for radical, locally made goods. They have coffee, art, music, jewelry, clothing and so many more miscellaneous and fun things for sale. The Royal Bison takes place at 8426 Gateway Blvd. 

December 2nd at Metro Cinema Homo-cidal presents Clueless, featuring scandalous drag performances by Teen Jesus Barbie, Gogo Fetch and Lourdes the Merry Virgin. Self-described punk drag coven Homo-cidal puts on one heck of a saucy show and like, paired up with Clueless? As if!  

Alberta Council of Women’s Shelters in partnership with the City of Edmonton are hosting a free screening of the documentary A Better Man Monday, Dec. 4 at Metro Cinema. The documentary explores understanding and accountability in the realm of abuse and how conversations could evolve to expedite social change.  

Hone your artistic skills at Happy Harbour Comics Dec. 10 with two live drawing sessions. A Holly Jolly Steampunk Christmas for folks of all ages in the afternoon and an adult Naughty Fairy and Pan session in the evening. The shop is taking advance registrations for both sittings. 

Give back to the community and dine with some of Edmonton’s finest chefs and barkeeps at Too Many Cooks, hosted by Wishbone Dec. 10. In addition to donating all ticket sales and proceeds from the silent auction at this delectable event to the Bissell Centre, show up for dinner with your warm clothing donations to sweeten the deal.  

Dec. 16, head to St. Johns Institute for the 8th bi-annual Zine Fair! This all ages affair boasts a wide variety of locally produced art, literature and pierogi as well as live performances by Maude and Lovelet. Just five bucks to enter.  

And obviously you’ll want to celebrate with BeatRoute at the Common Dec. 21 for a bangin’ holiday party with Physical Copies, Truster and Whitsundays! This show is absolutely free so we can say thank you for reading our humble little publication.  

From all of the contributors of the Edmonton Extra, happy holidays! Be safe and please do not drink and drive. Stay cozy!
