What does the SEA get up to? Check out some of our regular events below. Other events are scheduled as things come up, or as members request them. All our upcoming events can be found listed on the right hand side of the page, or here.
Interested in planning your own SEA-related event or organizing any of the ones below? Please contact us and we’ll help you out.
Summer / Winter Solstice Parties
Edmonton Pride Parade
We also have a regular coffee night, a book club and a ”sex, politics, and atheism” pub night every month. Check out all our events on the website or facebook and come join us!
Meet other local atheists and freethinkers for conversation and friendship! Come to an Atheists Meetup to discuss atheism-related beliefs and philosophies and consider spiritual and religious influence in Canada and the world.
Meetings are the first Tuesday of every month, 7:00 PM, either at the University of Alberta or the Stanley Milner Library. We head out to the pub afterwards!
Highway Cleanup – Annually in late Spring and again in the Fall
SEA has adopted a stretch of the QE2 highway to clean, which we do over the course of a few weekends (2-2.5 hour stretches) a few times a year. This event was first held in 2009, and has continued since then. If you’re interested in some civic minded volunteering on a weekend, this is a good fit.
Blood Drive– individual or group basis, approximately every 8 weeks
Donating blood – scientifically proven to save lives!
We’re trying to keep track of how much blood our members donate. Please add a comment to the Blood Donations page when you donate, and we’ll add your contribution to the meter on the right of the website.
To make an appointment or ask if you’re eligible to donate, please call Canadian Blood Services: 1-888-2-DONATE (1-888-236-6283)
Edmonton donation location:
8249-114th Street (South of the U of A Hospital)
We wanted an excuse for a family friendly potluck, so here it is! The solstice parties vary in exact date and the location from year to year, but they are always family friendly and have enough food for a small army.
Why would atheists march in a gay pride parade?
The SEA believes that atheists face many similar stigmas to those that the GLBT communities have worked hard to change. Allowing people the chance to interact with real, live atheists is one small step to making things better. As well, it’s the type of venue that already has many atheists, agnostics, and freethinkers who may not have known we existed.
Ever wish that you could go see that museum, but didn’t want to go alone? These events are focused on making us tourists in our own city/province. Join a group of atheists in this family friendly event as we explore museums and museum-like establishments. Keep an eye on our events page for these types of events.
Come join us the last Sunday of every month for breakfast (some say it’s brunch because it runs until 11:00amish with all the talking). Albert’s Family Restuarant at Bonnie Doon Mall consider us regulars!
