Canoe '22 Venue


The main spectator seating area will be on Silvers Hill. Two additional bleachers will be available along Prince Albert Rd and in the festival’s beer garden for those 19+. Spectators are welcome to bring blankets and chairs. The existing seating can accommodate 4,000+ spectators. Prince Albert Road will be closed from Hawthorn Street (south end entry point) up to Celtic Drive (north end entry point).

Our Venue Map can be found here.


Several streets in Dartmouth will have restricted access or be closed leading up to and during the event. Please read our Road Closure News post for details on impacted road closures.


There is limited parking near the Event Venue and around Lake Banook.  As a result, Canoe ’22 has secure, accessible parking at Dartmouth Crossing, where shuttle buses will transport spectators to the venue between 8:30 am and 10 pm each day of the event. Shuttle buses are expected to pick up/drop off spectators at 30 minute intervals. The drop off location will be on Prince Albert Rd. This service will also include an accessible shuttle busing option.

See shuttle route.


Please obey all street parking signs as enforcement will monitor and ticket illegal parking.  If you choose to use street parking options, we encourage parking further away from the venue entry points and walking to the event. If you choose to drink at the event’s licensed area, do not drink and drive.

Please respect others and the residential properties in the Lake Banook area.
