Street Fair Day on 13th Avenue

The street fair runs from 10-5pm along 13th Ave from Albert St to Elphinstone and this year will showcase almost 400 vendors from across Western Canada.

Street Fair Survival Tips!

  1. Wear your walking shoes! The street fair is like a TARDIS – it’s bigger on the inside! If it’s sunny, make sure you have water with you. Have fun!
  2. Bring cash. Most vendors can handle cashless transactions, but not all of them. ATMS are available along the Street Fair route
  3. Plan for crowds. Large crowds can lead to lost family members. Please make a plan with your children in case you get separated. The Cathedral Neighbourhood Centre at 2900 13th Ave is a safe and easy-to-spot landmark where Festival Volunteers will be there to help any lost ones.
  4. Check your wheels. Street fair moves slow. Please carry skateboards and leave bikes with the Bike Valet in Holy Rosary School parking lot.
  5. Please! Please! Please! Don’t bring your pets! We know this is not popular advice, but after over 30 years of experience, we have found that even the chillest of doggos find the street fair crowds to be a highly stressful experience. Please spare them that and leave them at home.
