In December of 2020, the Provincial Government announced funding from the economic stimulus fund for the City of Lethbridge to develop Festival Square in a permanent market plaza space.

Festival Square is located on the corner of 3rd Ave S and 6th Street S and is right across from the Downtown Lethbridge BRZ office.

The space will be transformed into a year-round urban plaza that will host various events such as Farmer’s Markets, musical events, outdoor movies, gatherings and games, and other annual events like Street Wheelers and Octoberfest.

The new space will include electricity upgrades, new lighting, a community stage, signage and seating.
