Finding your way around 

Each SPARK Spin route has been mapped using Strava, a free on-line and mobile route tracking tool. You can print the maps, or access on them on your mobile with the free Strava app. A printable PDF has also been provided for each route with detailed information about each SPARK Photo Festival location along the route. Just click on the links below each description.

Make it a day or weekend trip

There are so many yummy options for a quick coffee, ice cream, or lunch stop along each route. Other art galleries, museums, and other local landmarks will likely catch your attention, too. So, use our routes to tack on a couple additional stops. If you are visiting from away, find a place to stay using TripAdvisor.ca
