Entrance Lottery Changes

Given changes related to LRT development, a number of changes are necessary for 2017.

1. East Lottery (former Strathearn Drive location): This corral will be located at Stage 1 with entrance at Concessions Gate. Patrons who park by Connors Road can walk down Cloverdale Road or use stairs from Strathearn Drive (be aware it gets muddy at bottom if it rains). As colors are announced, patrons will exit the corral and be lined up on the sidewalk westward from corner of 93St and 97Ave. When it is time to enter the site, patrons will be escorted by East Greetings crew in a single line across 97 Ave, through Concessions Gate to the corner by Merch tent. Then they will be escorted by Liaison Security in groups of 25

2.  West Lottery (former Muttart Conservatory location): This corral will be located at Bike Lock-up (next to Stage 6). As usual, there is no public parking in the Cloverdale area. Patrons can use Muttart as a drop off point and lottery participants will have to walk up the bike path (West of 96 Ave) or cycle to bike lock-up. As colors are announced, patrons will exit the corral and form a procession, escorted by West Greetings crew, that moves within the cordoned line along 96 Ave to the corner  by Volunteer Gate. When it is time to enter the site, patrons will be escorted in groups of 25 through the swing gate by Liaison Security to the corner of Mainstage fence by the dance area, to be released (paired with group opposite) by Liaison Security Supervisor (as in previous years).
3. Regular Gate Openings: Regular gate line-ups and openings at North and South gates will happen as in previous years.
