Monday, September 30: 

  • Opening Reception at The Common (9910 109 St, a 5-min walk from The Matrix) officially 5pm-7pm but we have the venue booked all night, exclusively for Access attendees, so plan to stay late, or return after your streetcar excursion (see below)!
  • Trivia Night 7:00pm-9:30pm at The Common. Please note that Trivia Night is limited to ~40 participants. If you didn’t reply yes in your registration form, available spots are on a first-come, first-serve basis.
  • High Level Bridge Streetcar 6pm-8pm 
    • Chartered exclusively for Access attendees, hop on to head across the river and hop off to explore pubs in the historic Strathcona district, or stay onboard for a return sightseeing adventure (~35 min return trip)
    • If you are planning to take the streetcar on Monday, please be mindful that the round-trip will likely be about 35 minutes in an unheated car that is crossing our high-level bridge in the waning hours of the evening – it WILL be chilly, so please dress appropriately (think layers)!
