History:
Rock’n August 2017 will celebrate its 21st year of operation as the finest festival of Cars and Music in Western Canada and the City of St. Albert’s third largest annual event.

A number of years ago, the Cosmopolitan Clubs of St. Albert, Edmonton and Sturgeon wanted to create a fundraiser for Diabetes Research and Education. They decided that classic cars and the sounds of the fifties and sixties was the perfect mix and Rock’n August was born. With the support of the St. Albert Chamber of Commerce and the St. Albert Cruisers Car Club, this small, fun-filled event has turned into an international classic car display showcasing over 850 extraordinary automobiles.

Goal:
The primary goal of Rock’n August is to continue to be a significant contributor to diabetes research and education. The Alberta Diabetes Foundation at the University of Alberta has set the international benchmark for treatment of diabetes with Islet Cell Transplantation. This year Rock’n August will make every effort to bring $150,000 to the doctors and researchers who specialize in this disease that will affect one in four Canadians in the next three to four years. All funds raised by Rock’n August remain within the province of Alberta. To date, Rock ‘N August and its partners and event participants have raised more than $680,000.
