We’re closed for the season!

After a crazy fantastic summer at East Village Junction in 2018, we've closed our shipping container doors. Thanks to everyone who visited our pop-up retailer container park!

East Village Junction—EV’s liveliest lot—is an innovative shipping container shopping hub that’s part outdoor retail hive, part event spot, and really big part community gathering space. East Village Junction offers lots to love, all summer long: retail therapy, workshops, music, art, and YYC Food Trucks. In the comfortable central courtyard, you can sit, savour and shoot the breeze with friends.



Canine lovers rejoice. Stop by for dog treats, accessories, toys and apparel. And be sure to join Bark every Sunday at 10:30am as they lead a dog meet-up and urban walk, including free swag for our human and furry friends.

East Village ConneXion Pod
The space where East Villages people and stories meet. Stop by to discuss the future of our neighbourhood or maybe leave a hand-written note for a neighbour.

These familiar local faces are back at the Junction offering up their famous delectable summer sweets, including hand-squeezed lemonade, frozen pops, cookie dough and cotton candy.
