An Evening of Wine and Words

Join us at the JW Marriott Edmonton Ice District this year!

An Evening of Wine & Words is the premier fundraising event for the Centre, and Edmonton’s can’t miss concert of the year. This unique evening mixes elegance with fun to create an unforgettable experience.

Traditionally hosted at one of Edmonton’s premier hotels, patrons enjoy gourmet food, fine wine and first-class entertainment.

Past events were memorable because of Jim Cuddy and the wonderful entertainers he brought with him each year, including:

  • Miranda Mulholland
  • Martin Kerr
  • Barney Bentall
  • Greg Keelor
  • Kathleen Edwards
  • Dustin Bentall
  • Luke Doucet
  • Melissa McClelland
  • Danny Michel
  • Devin Cuddy
  • and Sam Polley


Premium musicians explore the power of words through heartfelt songs and stories in a songwriters format providing guests with a very intimate experience.

Mary Pinkowski, Poet Laureate for the City of Edmonton from 2014-2016, has written and performed several poems specifically for Wine & Words. 

An Evening of Wine & Words has raised over $1 million for the Centre’s family literacy programs.
