Traffic and Parking Advisory: Weekend of November 23-25 at the Centre

Symons Medal Lecture, Victorian Christmas Weekend, Wintertide Tree Lixghting all on deck

(Charlottetown, P.E.I.) — The weekend of Friday November 23 to Sunday November 25 will be busy one in and around Confederation Centre of the Arts. As a result, the public is advised that driving and parking in the Centre block may be limited.

The Victorian Christmas Market, presented by Discover Charlottetown, runs Friday evening through Sunday evening. In order for this event to take place, a number of road closures are required. Motorists are advised that on Friday, November 23, from 5 a.m. until 11 p.m. on Sunday, November 25, the following streets will be closed to all traffic, with no parking permitted on either side of the streets:

  • Queen Street, between Grafton and Kent;
  • Queen Street, between Grafton and Sydney;
  • Richmond Street, between Pownal and Great George.

People with mobility concerns will still be able to access the Centre’s Queen Street elevator into the lobby and concourse level. Also, the sidewalks around the complex will be open as usual, however those patrons being dropped off to the Centre will need to do so at the corner of Queen and Grafton.

The 2018 Symons Medal and Lecture is being presented to Dr. Margaret MacMillan, C.C., C.H. on Friday November 23 at 12:30 p.m. at the Centre. The Homburg Theatre will be full for this mid-day event so patrons attending the lecture, or headed to Mavor’s or The Showcase should leave extra time for parking nearby.

This same advice is extended to those students attending dance umbrella classes this weekend and for those patrons taking in the P.E.I. Symphony Orchestra in the Homburg Theatre, Sunday at 12:30 p.m.

Lastly, the City of Charlottetown’s Wintertide Holiday Festival Tree Lighting begins Friday, November 23 at 6:15 p.m. on Confederation Centre’s Upper Plaza.
