Summer is here… and events are BACK!
Summer is officially less than a week away! We’ve assembled a list of regional happenings coming up… There’s no better time than NOW to kick off summer in style and celebrate with our community – we all deserve festivities after the past year!
A Show & Shine, Food Trucks, Canada Day Celebrations, a Drive-in Concert, and more… Get your calendar out and keep reading to discover upcoming events!
DATE: June 17, 2021 | 4 – 8 PM
LOCATION: Main Street Leduc
Leduc’s downtown core is being transformed into a Show & Shine – we’re anticipating classic cars, muscle cars, street imports, motorcycles, and more displayed for all to see. The car club Horsepower 4 Hope will be on-site with some sweet cars… This community of individuals passionate about car culture raises awareness & donations for the Kids with Cancer Society!
With Father’s Day right around the corner, it’s the perfect opportunity to bring Dad out! Remember to bring your own ride (doesn’t have to be a fancy one – even a skateboard or bike will suffice), snap a pick outside of your favorite store on Main Street, and post it to social media with the hashtag #LeducThirdThursday – you’ll be entered into a giveaway contest to win gift card prizes!
DATES: June 18 + 23 + 25 + 30 | July 2 + 7 + 9 + 14 + 16 + 19 + 28 + 30 | 4 – 8 PM
LOCATION: Rolly View Community Hall Parking Lot
It’s been the sensation of the summer so far and it’s showing no signs of slowing down… The Rolly View Community Association has been bringing food trucks from near and far for YOU to enjoy!
What started out as just a simple, once-a-week food truck alternating between Mondays & Wednesdays has since EXPLODED… The RVCA is adding more dates, more food trucks, and more fun to keep up with the demand!
Bring your picnic blanket, chairs, or tailgate and head to the Rolly View Community Hall Parking Lot on any of the above dates for fantastic food truck eats. They’ve got an impressive line-up of trucks including Sheeba Indian Street Feed, Smokehouse BBQ, Starvin Marvin’s YEG, The Purple Perogy, and more for you to enjoy. Remember to get there early – the food trucks are often selling out before closing time!
DATES: Sundays | June 20 – Sep 26 | 11 AM – 3 PM
LOCATION: Blackjacks Roadhouse Parking Lot
Opportunities to see classic cars don’t stop at Main Street Leduc’s Third Thursday event. Blackjacks Roadhouse is bringing them out every Sunday until the end of summer!
Make your way out to Blackjacks every Sunday afternoon from 11 AM – 3 PM… They’ll have a large section of their parking lot sectioned off just for people who bring out their classic cars & unique rides people wouldn’t normally see.
Cruise through the parking lot, show off your own classic ride, and meet fellow gear heads! You don’t even have to be a member of any car club to join in the fun. Bring Dad out too if he’s crazy about classic cars – the next Classic Car Meet & Greet falls on Father’s Day!

The event will be taking place in the Block 50 Leduc plaza on June 24 from 4 – 8 PM… All that’s required of you is a yoga mat & an open state of mind!
