Your Show Hosts are Jasmin and Marissa. We will be there helping you set up and throughout the weekend as needed.
Vendor spaces are semi- assigned. Because of the openness of the parking lot we have three rows of 10 x 10 tents and we assign people a row as they come in so we can line up the tents properly. Once you have your spot on Friday, that will be your spot for the rest of the weekend. If you can’t make one of the days, we will put you towards the west end of the parking lot.
Exact location is: South Side Memorial Chapel, 8310 – 104 Street. We are on the South Side of the Funeral Home. There is a parking lot across the street to the funeral home with Precise Parking. It is $6 from 6AM-6PM. Spots are limited there. There may also be parking right next door but some years it hasn’t been open so plan accordingly.
You can drive in to unload, but please don’t leave your car in the funeral home parking lot and do not park on the other side of the funeral home where the church is. Try to unload quickly and park. We can watch your stuff while you park.
Please note: To get in to the space, come south on Calgary Trail/ 104 St. You will see a pull through in front of the Church on your right, please enter through either of these exits. You can exit behind the building into the Alley and turn left on 84 Ave, to come around and park on the one-way on 83 Ave.
Market dates are July 7, 8 & 9, 2023. Hours are 10 AM – 5 PM Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Set up time starts at 8 AM and tear down is after 5 PM. The market is rain or shine (just like Artwalk) so be prepared for weather!
Don’t forget to bring your table, tent, and chair! We don’t have spares to loan out unfortunately.
Please Note: Found Fest will be taking over Southside Memorial Chapel Space at the following times:
- On July 7 from 3:30pm-9pm
- On July 8 from 11am-5pm
- On July 9 from 12pm-5pm.
The show takes over the lobby and the chapel space, so it will be disruptive if artists sneak in to use the washroom during the show times and it will be busy right before and right after the performances. Here is the full show info: https://commongroundarts.ca/found/event/el-funeral/
You can use the washrooms and get water at the Artwalk Compound located in the Walterdale Theatre Parking lot with the Artwalk Badge I will give you.
You will receive a badge from me that is an official Artwalk badge on the Friday of Artwalk when you load in. Please use this badge to get access to the Artwalk washrooms.
Please do be respectful of the funeral home space. They have very graciously shared their space with us for the duration of Art Walk and we definitely want to express our gratitude toward them and be respectful of them and their space.
Marissa’s Phone Number is 780-264-0269 if you need her during the show.
