There is plenty of free parking at the Keystone Centre. If you're staying at Canad Inns on 18th Street, you can park in front of the hotel and walk through the breezeway to the Prairie Organics registration desk in City Square/Exhibition Hall (turn right into the first room after the breezeway). If coming just for the day, you can also access City Square/Exhibition Hall from the back of the Keystone Centre (east side). If you're heading south on 18th, turn left (east) on the first street after Canad Inns (Queen's Ave.) and drive around behind Canad Inns. You can park close to the Curling Club and take Entrance B or C. If you can't navigate stairs, there is a ramp at the Curling Club entrance just to the north of the Main entrance. For exhibitors, the loading area is through Door 8 near Entrance C on the map below.
