Thank You Edmonton for Another Successful Edmonton Guitar Show!
25-Sep-2023 - EDMONTON AB
The guitar community is alive and well in northern Alberta - 2023 ranks at largest gathering of exhibitors AND attendees in the show's history!
Held at the Italian Cultural Center on Sunday September 24th, the Edmonton Guitar Show featured over 40 exhibitor booths representing luthiers, retailers, collectors, educators, guitar accessories manufacturers, and sponsors - filling the 11,000 square foot venue with guitar and guitar-associated goods and services.
