Parking:

Driving into Banff? Don’t worry about finding Parking: The Train Station Public Parking Lot will be open on Dec. 31, only a 10 minute walk from the NYE celebrations!

Road Closures:

To make all this happen we need to make the area safe for staff to set up and residents to celebrate.   Banff Ave between Elk and Caribou will be closed starting at 12pm on Dec. 31, reopening on Jan. 1.
