Ready for round two? East Village Junction is back and better than ever for 2018! Our pop-up retail container park debuted last summer, turning an empty lot next to Studio Bell into a thriving cultural corner, the likes of which Calgarians had never seen. Now we’re gearing up to do it all again, bringing back some retailer favourites from last summer plus an exciting new mix of container-dwellers.
Every Friday through Sunday (and holiday Mondays) from May 18 to September 3, twelve retailers will set up shop inside modified shipping containers. With this year’s line-up, we think it’s safe to say that EV Junction will be one of THE best spots to pick up local goodies this summer! You can expect everything from jewelry, to Calgary-made honey, to unique vintage treasures.
And as fun as retail therapy can be, EV Junction is much more than just a market – there’s lots of experiences to take in as well. Meet up with other pup parents for a weekly urban dog walk, or roll out your yoga mat for a free ‘Flow Into Fit’ class with Live YYC, every Friday at noon. Throughout the summer you can expect all kinds of fun workshops and programs from our retailers – keep an eye on our social channels and for all things EV Junction.
You might want to tell your friends now that you’ve already found your crew’s official summer patio –Two Penny and Sugar Water are partnering to bring you the Tea Garden. Every Friday you can stop in for a drink (cocktails, wine, beer) from 12:00-8:00PM. Kick back and enjoy a bevvy outside while taking in the summer weather, plus grab some nosh from a YYCFoodTruck on-site.
