How should I get there?

Limited parking will be available at:

  • Port Moody Station (Skytrain & West Coast Express)

As approximately 50,000 visitors are expected over the three days of the event, those attending are encouraged to take public transit or consider walking to Rocky Point Park after parking their vehicle elsewhere. Information on utilizing public transit in Port Moody can be found on Translink’s website.

Will there be shuttle buses to Rocky Point Park?

No, unfortunately there is not a shuttle this year. However the Moody Centre Skytrain Station is a short 800 metre walk from the park.

Are there places to sit while eating?

Rocky Point Park does offer some picnic tables and park bench seating.

Within the two beverage areas there will be tables and chairs available to sit at. If you want to enjoy a cold beverage with your food then this is where you will want to grab your seat (available on a first come, first serve basis).

Otherwise, feel free to bring your own chairs and blankets and set up your own picnic on the grass.
