What you need to know about David Lam Park!

There are many things to love about our David Lam Park jazz weekend, but what I love most is the setting… out of all of our venues, it stays true to the outdoor festival vibe because the stages are situated in a park and people are all spread out on the grass enjoying the music.

Here is an essential guide to David Lam Park:

COME PREPARED

It’s the end of June, so bring your sunscreen, your water bottle to stay hydrated, some chairs, an umbrella if you want to catch some shade while lying on the grass and enjoying the great music, and bring rain gear, because you never know.

THERE’S A BIKE VALET

Avoid the traffic and ride your bikes to the park! We have a partnership with The Bicycle Valet,  so you have the option to lock your bikes up in style. It’s located in the grassy area at the end of Roundhouse Mews across from the Elsie Roy Elementary School.

LED-VIEWING SCREEN:

There’s a large LED-viewing screen on site to be located adjacent to the David Lam Park Main Stage, offering the public a greater viewing experience by projecting close ups of what is taking place on stage.

FOOD TRUCKS/GARDEN BARS

So many food options to choose from:

B&B Crepes
B&B Gourmet Salad and Wrap
Cart Vending
Chickpea
Didi’s Greek
Fasstrac Bubble Waffle
Helm’s Mobile Kitchen
Slavic Rolls
Double Decker Diner
Japa Dog
Lemon Heaven
Rocky Point Ice Cream
Roasted Revolution
Skewers Poutine
Thai Box

There is one large garden bar located on the West End of the park directly across from the main stage where you can enjoy organic Mill Street beers, a glass of Dirty Laundry wine, Brickworks 1904 Cider, Palm Bay Vodka Soda, or Mike’s Hard Lemonade at the beer garden. Non-alcoholic options too!
