GETTING HERE

TO THE HEART OF STANLEY PARK

Reaching Stanley Park is easy. Just minutes from downtown Vancouver and right beside the city’s historic West End neighborhood, there's no shortage of choices when it comes to plotting your route.

Close to major transportation links like the SeaBus and Skytrain and various Bus routes, you can walk or bike via West Georgia Street (tip: the Seawall trail alongside Coal Harbour goes in the same direction and is much more scenic). Alternatively, walk or bike alongside English Bay’s Seawall stretch, to the park’s west side entrance.

When you reach the park, follow the SKOOKUM signs, slip between the towering trees and let your festival begin – you’ll feel like you’re a million miles from the city.

JUST MINUTES FROM DOWNTOWN VANCOUVER

Parking in Stanley Park is extremely limited and we strongly encourage you to use transit instead. TransLink’s #19 bus will take you directly from downtown Vancouver right into the heart of the park, and a short stroll from the festival site.

If you’re traveling from Vancouver’s North Shore via the SeaBus transit service, transfer to the #19 in downtown Vancouver or take a Seawall stroll or bike ride alongside Coal Harbour to the park. Need additional transit information? Visit the TransLink website.

For those arriving via transit from the Lower Mainland, there are several Park and Ride options in place. Go to TransLink for further information or download their mobile app. For a limited time, you can use the promo code “PARKRIDE” to take advantage of a free one-day parking session.

QUICK & CONVENIENT

Our official car share partner, Evo has made getting to SKOOKUM easier than ever by offering free valet service. That means festivalgoers can drive an Evo into Stanley Park, pull up to the EvoValet near the festival gates and not have to worry about finding parking. It doesn’t get much simpler than that!

Not a member yet? Don’t worry! Evo is offering all festival attendees free membership and 30 minutes driving time, making this the perfect time for newbies to give them a spin. Visit evo.ca and use promo code SKOOKUM.
