Dundas Place can be closed to vehicles for special events and programming, to offer more space for pedestrians and cyclists.  If you have questions about Dundas Place, or would like to learn more, please contact Ryan Craven, Manager of Core Area Programs at rcraven@london.ca.

Come perform on Linden Stage! Linden Stage in Market Lane Park (137 Dundas Street) is available for pop-up performances when it's not booked for events or activations. The regular activations are posted in Market Lane Park.  Any user of the stage must follow the Public Nuisance By-law – PH-18 and the Rzone policy. Please note musicians will be required to bring their own equipment.
