Dig out your neon gear or snag some vintage threads from the Ave’s shops – it’s going to be like, totally awesome!

And July 26 and 27 are also family nights with movies in the park. Come relive your favourite ’80s films under the stars, and keep an eye out for a special guest who will drop by to join in the fun.

August is all about celebrating arts and culture on 17th Ave. From August 16 to 18, immerse yourself in curated art tours, and get up close and personal with the incredibly talented artists who call the community home.
