  • We are located in a former church - the Queen Memorial Building, which is the building NOT directly on the corner of 33rd and Wharton but the second old church building on 33rd Street behind the iron gate.

  • There is FREE off-street parking located behind the building and accessible through the driveway between the two old church buildings from 33rd Street.

  • While our space is on the first floor, this event is NOT currently wheelchair accessible as there is a flight of steps from outside to enter the building.

  • This space has a private single-use bathroom.
