Update: Northwestival Cancellation

In response to new restrictions set forth by the government to help reduce the spread of COVID-19, we have made the decision to cancel this year’s Northwestival event. The health and well-being of our community is our greatest priority. In an effort to maintain the ‘spirit’ of our annual festival, our Snowman Avenue display will be assembled at our Discovery Centre so that our residents, nearby healthcare staff and visitors to University District can enjoy some holiday cheer.

The Discovery Centre will remain open for regular operating hours as a retail business and will continue to maintain all safety protocols. Appointments with our builder partners are strongly recommended. We encourage everyone to stay safe.
