The Spirit of Edmonton

The Spirit of Edmonton has grown from a few avid Edmonton Eskimo and CFL football fans in 1973, to a large contingent of dedicated committee members and volunteers. This dedicated team proudly represents and promotes the City of Edmonton as well as the Edmonton Eskimos to the rest of Canada each and every year at the annual Grey Cup Festival. We have been a premier attraction at every Grey Cup Festival for 42 years! We are still one of the only venues at the Grey Cup Festival that offers great entertainment nightly without a cover charge!

The Spirit has not only grown in size, but also in vision and reach. We still promote our avid support for the Green and Gold and the Grey Cup Championship. However, our enthusiasm and scope has expanded to include promoting the City of Edmonton as a great place to visit, a great place to live, a great place to do business, and of course a great place where sports fans are known to be amongst the best in the world.

Through our very popular Spirit of Edmonton Grey Cup Hospitality Room and the always sold out Spirit of Edmonton Grey Cup Breakfast, the Spirit of Edmonton is there for everyone to experience and enjoy while at the Grey Cup host city.

The Spirit of Edmonton is the place to be.

Come out and join us!

Chairman's Message


Congratulations to the Edmonton Eskimo’s on Winning their 14th Grey Cup!

Having the Eskimo’s in the Grey Cup Game is an added bonus for the Spirit of Edmonton, without the support of our Sponsors and CFL Fans we would not be as successful and fun as we are.

On behalf of the Spirit of Edmonton Committee I would like to thank our host, the Victoria Inn, the CFL, The City of Edmonton, our Sponsors, Fans, Supporters and the Edmonton Eskimo’s for their contribution in making the 2015 Grey Cup Festival in Winnipeg a great success.

We are pleased to announce for the 2016 Grey Cup, that we are back in the Sheraton Centre Toronto Hotel at 123 Queen Street West.

We are looking forward to seeing all our friends, fans and supporters and meeting new CFL fans that we hope will become part of the Spirit Family. We will be opening on Thursday, November 24 at 4pm in the Grand Ballroom of the Sheraton Centre Hotel. With your support and the fantastic support of our Sponsors we will be able to maintain our no cover charge policy.

We will be hosting one Breakfast on Saturday November 26. If you have not attended a Spirit of Edmonton Breakfast it is a Grey Cup Festival highlight. I encourage you to join us. Click here to purchase your breakfast tickets. Please visit our Sponsor page and banner and support these companies whenever possible. Without these amazing Sponsors we would not be able to provide you with the Spirit of Edmonton Hospitality Room and Breakfast that we hope you all enjoy attending as much as we enjoy hosting.

On behalf of the entire Spirit of Edmonton Committee I want to thank all of you for your continued support at Grey Cup and throughout the year. We look forward to seeing you in Toronto!
