How to Get Here and Where To Park
Events will take place at the Gibsons Public Market, 473 Gower Point Road in Lower Gibsons. If you're coming from the lower mainland, it's a short 40 minute ferry ride from Horseshoe Bay to Langdale and the Sunshine Coast public transit system stops right in front of the Market. It is highly recommended to make reservations for the ferry if you are driving over.
There will be no on-site parking for the Saturday afternoon (1-4pm) event, but there is street parking one block away on Dougall Road, Winn Road, S. Fletcher Road, and Gower Point Road at Dougall Park. Please be mindful of the neighbours' driveways and yards.
Where To Stay and What To Do:
There are a few hotels in Gibsons and many B&B's you can check out on TripAdvisor or Expedia. If you're coming over for the weekend (great idea!), check out Sunshine Coast Tourism's suggestions for things to do and places to stay!
