Culture & Recreation >> 13 For 13 Cultural Event


Shuttles may stop running earlier than 9:15pm if capacity has been reached at the venue. For the safety of everyone involved, the Town reserves the right to limit the number of patrons on the site.


Event Parking & Shuttle Details:

Shuttle Service will begin at The Fort Erie Race Track and Fort Erie Leisureplex at 2:00 pm with the first shuttle leaving at 2:15 pm. 

Shuttles will stop bringing patrons to the venue at 9:15pm.

Services for leaving the site will resume at 9:45pm to bring guests back to their vehicles. 

There will be no available parking at Old Fort Erie for the 13 For 13 Cultural Event. The Old Fort Erie parking lot will be restricted to allow shuttles and other important event vehicle access. We encourage guests to use the 13 For 13 Cultural Event shuttle system to attend the event. Due to the limited amount of parking in and around Old Fort Erie, we are offering a free-of-charge shuttle system that will help guests avoid traffic. We will have two shuttle launch stations, one at the Fort Erie Racetrack and another at the Fort Erie Leisureplex. Shuttles will be going to and from the 13 For 13 Cultural Event.

A number of road closures will be in place (see below). Niagara Regional Police and Niagara Parks Police will be on-site to restrict vehicular access and maintain a safe and enjoyable event for all attendees. For those who do not live in the area and cannot access Old Fort Erie by foot, the most efficient way will be using the provided shuttle services.

Accessible Shuttle Details:

Limited (6) Accessible parking spots will be available at Old Fort Erie on a first-come, first, serve basis, however, gaining access to the site will be very difficult based on road closures and the complexity of the event. We strongly recommend all guests utilize the shuttle service provided. The shuttle services are fully accessible, with room to comfortably transport wheelchairs and other important equipment. Our shuttles will be running to and from the event allowing guests to board when needed and will be available at the Fort Erie Leisureplex location only.
