Attend the Walkalong

Four Walk Times – More time & space to enjoy the music!

This year we are introducing four musical walking times staggered throughout the day. With less traffic on the trail you’ll have more time to immerse yourself in instrumental and natural coastal forest melodies along the way.


Walkalong Ticket Details

Due to COVID-19 mass gathering restrictions, each walk is limited to 50 event attendees.

We STRONGLY encourage those interested in attending to get their tickets in advance. Ticket holders will have a guaranteed spot for the walk time on their ticket. If ticket holders show up for the wrong walk time, it is possible they may not be able to participate if the walk is full.

UPDATED: In-person registration registration on the day of the event is now available. Those who are registering on the day of the event are not guaranteed a walking spot and may be asked to return to the Learning Centre for a later walk.

Upon arriving at the Millard Learning Centre, all attendees must check-in at the Registration Booth. Please have an electronic or printed copy of your ticket (or be able to identify the first and last name of the person who purchased your ticket).

Walks must show up within each walk’s registration period. Each walk’s registration period is 45 minutes. Walkers will not be admitted once the registration period closes for the walk.
