The JUNOS return to Edmonton for 2023

This is JUNO Week in Toronto as the industry prepares for the first proper JUNO ceremony in three years. Traditionally, this is also the time when we find out which city will hold the next event.

It was announced today (May 10) that the 2023 JUNOS will head west again, setting up in Edmonton from March 6-12, 2023, with the annual ceremonies broadcast from Rogers Place on Sunday, March 12, 2023.

Edmonton last hosted the JUNOS in 2004–remember when Alanis Morissette hosted?–so it’s definitely time to go back.

Here’s a list of other JUNO cities since the event left Toronto and Hamilton and started touring the country in 2002.

  • Toronto (2011, 2021, 2022)
  • St. John’s NL (2002, 2010)
  • Ottawa (2003, 2012, 2017)
  • Winnipeg (2005, 2014)
  • Halifax (2006)
  • Saskatoon (2007 and the COVID-canceled 2020)
  • Calgary (2008 and 2016)
  • Vancouver (2009 and 2018)
  • Regina (2013)
  • Hamilton (2015)
