I heard there was construction at the Garden in 2019. How will that affect Luminaria?
A new entry pavilion is being built at the Garden, so there will be signs of construction near the visitor entry. However, we’re making plans to manage patron entry so it’s smooth and easy, and event activities will take place in the Kurimoto Japanese Garden and Aga Khan Garden, areas unaffected by construction.
I bought tickets online. What do I need to show at the gate?
I see the event is sold out. Is there any way I can get an extra ticket or change my timeslot?
Where is the Garden located? Are you on the University of Alberta campus?
How can I get to Luminaria? What about parking?
There are several ways to get to the event. Visit our Getting Here and Parking Page for details.
I’m taking the shuttle. What time should I arrive for my bus?
- If you are leaving from Corbett Hall on the U of A Campus, allow approx. 45 minutes to get to the Garden.
- If you are taking the shuttle from the Devon Shopping Centre, allow approx. 8 minutes to get to the Garden.
- If you are taking the shuttle from Clymont Hall, allow approx. 8 minutes to get to the Garden.
