WARM CLOTHING DRIVE FOR BISSELL

GETTING HERE

WHERE CAN I PARK?

  • Cheap parking for a good cause can be found in the YESS lot just north of the venue, next to the old brick building. You pay for parking using the HangTag app.
  • The large lot across the street from the venue is free on Saturdays from 9-3 (which is when the Strathcona Farmers' market runs, so expect the lot to be busy!). Outside of those hours, it's a paid lot.
  • There is paid street parking around the neighbourhoods, which can be paid for at the City of Edmonton meters.
  • There's some free street parking through the surrounding neighbourhoods.

MASKING

COVID/the flu/RSV/etc. are on the loose, and while things are more relaxed than they were at the last two fairs, vendors and shoppers are most welcome to mask up while in the building if they prefer to do so. It’s to your comfort level, no judgment here! 


We’ll have some disposable masks at the door for customers and vendors, but pls note there is a limited supply, so bring your own if you can. 


Let's work to keep each other safe! <3

ACCESSIBILITY

  • The Old Strathcona Performing Arts Centre is largely barrier-free and accessible, and includes accessible washroom facilities (note that the facilities are gendered). 
  • Please note that there is one section of the larger room that is raised and is accessed via a small number of stairs.  
  • For folks with young kids: the aisle width in the venue is limited, so we recommend leaving strollers at home/in your vehicle, if you can swing it!

QUIET TIMES

  • For customers who would prefer a quieter shopping experience, our slower times tend to be Friday nights from 8-9pm and Sunday mornings from 10-11am. We can't predict the future, but we think those are your best bets!
  • If you would rather shop online, check out the vendor links in our vendor roster! Most of our vendors have online shops and would love to ship their wares directly to you! 

COFFEE + SNACKS!

  • The fine folks at Ace Coffee Roasters will be selling donuts, sandwiches, and coffee in the lobby. Nice! 
  • Outside food and drinks are permitted. 

PETS

The Royal Bison loves a good four-legged friend, so feel free to bring your leashed dogs all weekend long! The market does get busy and noisy, so if your furry friend isn’t good in crowds, the Bison might not be the place for them. 

CAN I BUY ONLINE?

  • Most of our vendors have online shops and would love to ship their wares directly to you!
  • We've linked to all of our vendors' pages in our online vendor roster and encourage you to shop their online stores.
