About the event
The Galloway Station Museum and the Town of Edson are excited to partner for our annual Wop May Day celebration on September 2 in conjunction with Alberta Day!
Wilfrid Reid 'Wop' May was a decorated WWI pilot that was involved in the first aerial police chase in Canadian history, in which he landed right here in Edson! This event is in honour of Wop May and his accomplishments and is celebrated in memory of his son, Denny May, who was essential in carrying on Wop's legacy.
Join us for food trucks, an artisan market featuring local artists, the ever-popular pie eating contest, carnival and field games, live music and much more. It is sure to be a great day with lots of fun for the whole family!
