ABOUT EDMONTON INTERNATIONAL SEVENS
Edmonton International Sevens, formerly known as Rugbyfest, is a new take on a long rugby tradition in Edmonton. Rugbyfest began in 1968 when a couple of players, Lynn Davies and David Graham, decided to organize a common function for the Edmonton teams that had individually hosted clubs from other provinces. Teams across Canada travel to Edmonton to play and participate in a weekend full of social events. The tournament has hosted teams from Winnipeg to Montana, to California, to Connecticut, to Ireland and Scotland. The tournament hosts over 75 men’s and women’s teams, playing rugby, reestablishing old friendships and making new ones.
