Bike to the Bard with Paths for People! Join a fun, easy and friendly group ride to a performance of Romeo and Juliet.

The ride will begin at 6:30pm from Paul Kane Park and ride almost entirely on dedicated bike infrastructure (separate or away from traffic) to the venue. You can also join up with the ride as we pass through Railtown Park, or in front of the Milner Library. The performance begins at 8pm and lasts approximately 2 hours, with a 15 minute intermission. (Don't forget your bike lights for the ride home.)

We are offering ride participants a special ticket price of $22 for the performance! Use promo code "BIKE2023" when purchasing your tickets here. The ride portion is free and open to all on bikes, scooters, and similar, including e-bikes, electric unicycles, etc.

Complimentary, secure, monitored bike parking is provided directly in front of the entrance to the tent (please use a bike lock). Edmonton Expo security will supervise the bike parking for the full duration of the event.

Patrons are welcome to bring their coats and bags with them to their seats.

About Romeo and Juliet

What if your first true love was someone you’d been told to hate? Caught between two feuding families, Shakespeare’s immortal young lovers Romeo and Juliet try to fashion a new world amid the violence of the old, but cataclysmic choices and tragic twists propel them toward a final confrontation with fate. 

Directed by Freewill’s Artistic Director - David Horak


Ride Details

Please ensure your bicycle (or other mobility device) is in good, working order. The group will not have time to stop if you have a mechanical issue. As you are riding, please follow all traffic regulations and make independent decisions (e.g. don’t assume that if a person in front of you crosses an intersection, that it is necessarily safe for you to immediately follow). Participants are responsible for their own riding decisions.

Food & Drink

Concessions (popcorn, chocolate bars, water, pop, etc) will be served outside the tent in the Spiegel-garden. We encourage you to bring your water bottle (they have a fountain in the Spiegel-garden where you can refill it). They ask you not to bring anything covered in sugar (i.e. donuts, candy, etc.) or things that may be sticky (i.e. ice cream, jams, etc.). Otherwise, you are free to bring whatever food or snack that you'd like inside the venue.
