**NEW TIME** because of the rain. 

CUPE 3903 members, families, friends, and all those who supported us for twenty long weeks on strike are invited to a celebration of resistance!

CUPE Carnival will take place on Sunday July 22 from 4:30 pm to 7:30 pm in High Park Picnic Area #4 (Close to the Bloor St W entrance – see below for a map and accessibility info). There will be food and snacks, including vegan, gluten free, and halal options, as well as soft drinks.

Bring your kids, your friends, your picket line buddies! There will be activities and games.

It’s been a long strike, and there is struggle ahead as the provincial government cracks down on workers’ rights and attacks public institutions. Let’s take this time to recharge, enjoy each other’s company, eat good food, and celebrate all those whose resilience and determination should make the Ford government quake in their boots!

Transit: High Park Station is unfortunately not accessible. The nearest accessible station is Dundas West,  but that is a 15 minute walk from the picnic area. The 506 streetcar-replacement bus goes along College St to High Park Station, and can be accessed from Queen’s Park Station, which is accessible.

Parking: There is free parking in High Park, however, it can only be accessed from the Bloor St W entrance on Sundays. There should also be street parking near our picnic area.

Washrooms: There are accessible washrooms in Chess House, which is near our picnic area.
