Bats in the Attic – Seller Info

Where does this event take place?
Ground Control Toronto, 1279 Queen Street West, Toronto

The nearest major intersection is Queen West and Dufferin; the 501 Queen streetcar stops less than a block away in both directions (Queen West at Brock), and the closest parking is a block west in the Green P lot at 1325 Queen Street West.

Note for both drivers and transit riders – there is major construction along King Street West from Shaw to Dufferin for all of 2024. This does not affect the area adjacent to our venue but many transit routes in the area are being diverted at various times to accommodate road work. Please check transit schedules and updates (especially for the 501 Queen, 504 King and the 29/929 Dufferin lines) before heading to the neighbourhood.

Ground Control is fully accessible, has wifi available, and has an ATM on site.
