Junction Park


Our venue is the beautiful Stan Clarke, and Junction Park and U Siyam Pavilion in downtown Squamish. It has the perfect view of the Stawamus Chief and is surrounded by shops and restaurants. You can find parking around downtown and several lots are off Loggers Lane on the way to the park. The park itself is between Main and Victoria on Cleveland Avenue, but it's best just to follow the music and the smell of good food!

The purpose of art is washing the dust of daily life off our souls.
