Thursday, May 30th, 7:00 p.m.

SMS Equipment Stadium at Shell Place

10:00 a.m. – ‘Before He Eats’ at Mitchell’s Cafe

Fuel your day with breakfast at Mitchell’s Café, a crowd favourite. From their unique daily specials to fresh-from-the-oven baked goods, there’s something for everyone. Don’t forget to grab a loaf of their famous Sunshine Bread on your way out!


12:00 p.m. – There’s ‘Something in the Water’ at the Snye

Take your coffee to go and enjoy it along the river at Snye Point Park. If you’re feeling up to it, gather some friends and start up a game of beach volleyball.


2:00 p.m. – Be ‘Blown Away’ by Local Brews at Wood Buffalo Brewing Co.

Get a taste of Fort McMurray with a crisp and refreshing pint from Wood Buffalo Brewing Co. You can’t go wrong with their Lift Kit Lager, but if you can’t decide, ask for a flight and sample!


4:30 p.m. – Take a ‘Smoke Break’ at Prime Social Kitchen

Feed your appetite at Prime Social Kitchen with aromatic Roasted Prime Rib or opt for some lighter fare with a Blackened Salmon Salad. Either way, you won’t want to miss out on this one-of-a-kind dining experience.


7:00 p.m. – Show Time!

Throw on your cowboy boots and head over to SMS Equipment Stadium at Shell Place! With food trucks, activations, and two amazing opening acts, there’s plenty of fun for the whole family.


11:00 p.m. – ‘Play On’ at East Village Pub + Eatery

Get the after-party started at this go-to neighbourhood pub. East Village’s lively atmosphere, hit-filled playlist, and daily drink specials will keep you dancing all night long. If you need a place to rest after exploring Fort McMurray, check out our accommodation page.


We hope to ‘See You Again’ as Summer Sounds FM returns with Nickelback on July 6th, and Bryan Adams on July 13th.
