You've always known you were destined for bigger things. Well, now is the time to claim your destiny - Fort Edmonton Park, one of our city's most noble attractions, challenges you to vie for your rightly place on the throne during our Victoria Day opening weekend contest.

Declare yourselves, Lords and Ladies

All contenders will answer one royal questions and submit a stately portrait of you and your successors in a most regal pose to the Fort Edmonton Facebook page (see all the questions and contest details here). Then declare an edict to all your friends and family that they must, by royal command, vote for your entry.

Establish your supremacy at the Aristocratic Games

The top ten profiles will be invited to battle for all the royal marbles during the Aristocratic Games on Sunday, May 20 at Fort Edmonton Park. You and your family will compete in a range of upper-crust games, such as hobby-horse polo, tea pouring and pulling swords from stones.

Join us for a truly grand day, full of princely experiences for everyone involved - including a celebratory coronation tea with spectating commoners.

New attractions for 2012

Fort Edmonton is one of our city's most popular attractions and this year, it's better than ever with a ton of special events and lots of new experiences, such as our opening weekend contest and Aristocratic Games. (Plus, now that the bridge construction is done, it's nice and easy to get here again.)

Fort Edmonton events

All through the summer, you'll find something special happening at the Fort. Play around in the penny arcade or enjoy high tea during the July 1 Dominion Day celebrations. Break out your bodhran and bagpipes for the two-day Celtic Gathering in July - the largest event of its kind in northern Alberta.

Indulge your passion for classic cars during Vintage Vehicles Day and discover your roots during an informative genealogy session during the Celebrate our Heritage event. Come hungry to the Fort's annual horticultural weekend - Field to Table: A Horticultural Extravaganza - at the end of August. This may be your year to take it all in the watermelon eating contest.

Keep an eye on Fort Edmonton Park's special events listings for up-to-the-minute details on this year's fun.
