Grey Cup 2018

106th Grey Cup

The Spirit of Edmonton, Powered by United Construction Company, is so excited to welcome all CFL fans to “Our House” for the 106th Grey Cup Festival in Edmonton beginning on November 22nd and culminating with the Grey Cup game on Sunday November 25th.

The Spirit of Edmonton Grey Cup Committee has been very busy planning and organizing our 45th annual Spirit of Edmonton Room, opening at 2pm on Thursday November 22 at The Westin Hotel and running until closing time on Saturday November 24th. As is our tradition we will have the best live entertainment, including cheer teams, dance groups, bands and much more, every hour we are open.

The Spirit of Edmonton Breakfast will be held at The Shaw Convention Center on Saturday November 24th, 8:00 am – Noon.

Watch this site as tickets will be available starting at 1pm on Wednesday February 14th.

There will be a link to purchase your tickets. Get them quickly as traditionally the breakfast sells out in a few days. You will be able to choose the number of tickets (or tables) required, make your payment and print your tickets, all within a matter of a few minutes

We look forward to seeing all our loyal “Grey Cuppers” as well as welcoming all those that might be new to the Grey Cup Festival and The Spirit of Edmonton.

Grey Cup Breakfast

The Spirit of Edmonton Grey Cup Breakfast has grown significantly since we started hosting it over 40 years ago. The breakfast starts at 8:00 with our extremely popular Sluice Juice. We can’t tell you how the juice is mixed or the secret ingredients, but back in the day, a canoe paddle was used! Our mixologists have gone high tech and now use a 500-gallon tank and pump system.

Our entertainment at the breakfast includes outstanding performances. You will also see unusual breakfast attire worn by our repeat guests. There are numerous door prizes and non-stop entertainment throughout the event, so much so it’s difficult to find the time to eat! If that isn’t enough to get you going, a live band will help you to dance off the calories and the Sluice Juice will get you primed for the day!

It wasn't easy growing up the oldest of 14 siblings. Sociable was always looking out for his little brothers and sisters and knew that in order to support them all, he would need to make it big. At an early age he discovered his talent for entertaining after trying out for the football team. He failed to make the cut, but had everyone howling with laughter at his actions.

Sociable has been the official mascot of the Spirit of Edmonton since 2012, making his first appearance at the Grey Cup in Toronto. Born out of the SOE logo, Sociable represents the friendly, welcoming atmosphere that is customary at Spirit of Edmonton events. His namesake represents a tradition; the "Sociable" cry can be heard every year, turning strangers into family over a drink and a salute. Never one to shy away from a hug, dance or photo opportunity, Sociable travels with the Spirit each and every year. He parties so hard, in fact, that he hibernates in Edmonton from December until the next Grey Cup.
