  • All three Downtown parkades are free on Saturdays, and they are all close to participating restaurants.
  • Want to hit every restaurant? Give yourself peace of mind and plan your parking for the full three hours of the event. Plan your route strategically, park in one of our Parkades or meter parking with 4 hour time limits or budget time to move your vehicle.
  • Be aware of posted parking time limits and rates so you can have peace of mind while you eat your way to victory.
  • On street parking time limits double on Saturdays, meaning you can park at a 2 hour on street spot for 4 hours without moving your car.
