About this Event
Binners’ Project is hosting its first fundraising street party in the vibrant Alley Oop!
Celebrate the start of summer by joining a night of live music, great food, cool games, and creative drinks. You’ll be surrounded by many snapshot moments you won’t know where to start. With custom cocktails from a bar outfitted as a dumpster, chats with binners who you’ll also find featured on our story wall, food from our two complimentary food trucks, and instagram moments all throughout the alley – it’s shaping up to be a glorious night.
Here's what you need to know:
Tickets are required upon entry – make sure to get them early as we're expecting to sell out! Included in your ticket is complimentary (yes that means free!) access to our two food trucks: La Taqueria and The Praguery, as well as two drink tickets. You'll also have full access to our live entertainment area, games, photo wall, and lounge area.
There will be two bars available throughout the alley where we will have custom cocktails as well as beer, wine, and non alcoholic beverages.
Location: Alley Oop is located between W Hastings St and W Pender St from the north/south, and Seymour St and Granville St from the east/west. Here’s a Google Map link to the exact spot.
Please enter from Granville Street and have your ticket and ID ready for the host.
Time: The event will open at 6pm and run until 11pm. You may re-enter the event after leaving using your wristband.
Music: From 6:30pm-8:30pm we'll be joined by a live band and will have a DJ to close the night out from 9:00pm-11:00pm.
