Ready to ride to the Stewart Park Festival?

In an effort to give easier access to cyclists and to continue on with our green initiative quest, we’ll be offering supervised bicycle parking at the Stewart Park Festival this year!

Yep, you heard us.

In partnership with Heritage Bikes & Rentals, we’ll have a bike rack set up in the downtown core where you’ll get a valet-style service for your bike – and at no charge!

Here’s How It’ll Work:

When you come into town, you’ll park your bike at the bike rack, and we’ll give you a ticket.

After you’ve strolled through the park, soaked in the music, took part in a workshop and had a cold pint at our Crystal Palace patio, your two-wheeled friend will be waiting for you right where you left it.

You’ll give us your ticket number and we’ll retrieve your bike for you. It’s as simple as that.

Heritage Bikes & Rentals will coordinate the supervised bike racks and they’re also going to give you an opportunity to get the full experience here in Perth: with a guided bike tour! If you want to take a tour through and around town, Heritage Bikes & Rentals will be offering guided bike tours throughout the weekend (rates apply).

How to get to the Bike Racks:

Whether you’re coming from Ottawa, Kingston, Sharbot Lake or from across town, you can come into Perth via Drummond Street. You’ll avoid congested traffic that way. If you’re coming from Ottawa, you’ll take a right turn on to the street after the library. If you’re coming from Kingston, you’ll go left after you make your way down the Drummond Street bridge. Hint: you’ll see the Tay Basin!

Make your way down Colbourne Street and you’ll see the bike racks located beside the Studio Theatre.

If you’re interested in staying for the weekend, there are a range of accommodation options, including camping at Last Duel Park.

At the Stewart Park Festival, we want to greet you with open spokes, and this is our little way of welcoming you to our festival.

See you there.
