Ritchie History Walk

X2 back-to-back walks (10:30 - 12:30 and 1:00 - 3:00)

*first walk sold out*

Back by popular demand, we excited to announce we will be hosting another Historical walking tour led by history researcher and podcaster Chris Chang-Yen Phillips.

  • Did you miss last year's event? Check it out by listening here.
  • Do you have burning questions about Ritchie's history?

Edmonton's 4th Historian Laureate Chris Chang-Yen Phillips wants to help you find out the answers with a walking tour and a podcast. Maybe you've wondered what's up with the trees that got cut down on Whyte Ave, who was here 150 years ago, or whether it's true that trains ran through Mill Creek Ravine, or whether this area was ever underneath a glacier.

At 10:30 am and 1 pm on Sunday, June 10, Chris will lead a walk around the neighbourhood based on your questions. We will meet at Ritchie Community League at 10:30 am or 1 pm to start the walking tour. And later in June, highlights from the walk will be featured on his local history podcast, Let's Find Out.

Come join us for a neighbourhood walk in Ritchie and we can find out about Ritchie's history together!

Let's Talk Traffic Safety 

As you guys may be aware, there have been some traffic/pedestrian/bicyclist safety issues bubbling away in our community for some time. 

We thought it would be a good idea to get together, gather some thoughts about key issues, and explore potential solutions.

Ritchie Community League Day

Ritchie Gears Up For Uniquely Canadian Community League Day

Click to View Volunteer Opportunities on

Ritchie Community League plans to give this year’s Community League Day celebration a distinct Canadian flavor, in recognition of our country’s 150th birthday.

In what is likely a first for our league, we will be hosting a Canadian Citzenship Ceremony at 1:00 p.m.   Approximately 50 people will be sworn in and officially receive their citizenship papers as new Canadians.  Our job is to give them and their families a warm welcome and a positive preview of what community leagues are all about.

And we plan to do that in style.

Once again, we have a full menu of activities planned for the day, including a free breakfast, children’s cardboard car parade, live music, bouncy castle, food trucks and a variety of displays by the league and partner agencies.

As in the past three years, we are also teaming up with the Mainstreet Cruisers and Edmonton Hot Rod Association to host a classic car show, from 11:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.  The cars will be showcased in the lovely bowl in the east end of Ritchie Park.

In keeping with the “Canada 150” theme, we are asking everyone to wear something Canadian (i.e. hats and shirts) and we will be decorating the hall and park with Canadian flags and colors.

We are also attempting to connect with one or more indigenous groups to acknowledge the manner in which Ritchie lands were used 150 years ago.

Everyone is welcome  -  Admission is free.
