Christmas will come early to those in Yellowknife who love free parking. The city is offering free downtown parking from December 21st to January 1st.

The City will not be enforcing parking meters during this period but do want to remind people parking in the downtown area for extended periods of time to not park beside storefronts in an effort to provide easier access to these stores throughout the day.

All other parking regulations will still be enforced such as fire lanes, handicap stalls, and loading zones. This includes parking restrictions on Franklin Avenue from 3:00 – 9:00 a.m. and 4:30 – 6:00 p.m. Monday through Friday.
