Tips and Advice
Below are some tips and advice to help you make the most out of your Maple Ridge Canada Day experience.
TIP #1: If driving, arrive early as parking on the day is challenging. Limited underground parking is available if you use the Edge Street and Dewdney Trunk entrances. There is also a fair bit of street parking in the area, although you may need to walk a ways.
TIP #2: Carpool or take public transit if you can.
TIP #3: Some of the live entertainment takes place indoors at the ACT Art Centre (which makes the Maple Ridge Canada Day event an especially good one in case of rain).
