The City of St. John’s Downtown Pedestrian Mall is open in 2024 from June 20 to September 2.

From noon until 10 p.m. daily, Water Street from Adelaide Street to Prescott Street will be closed to vehicles, with pedestrian traffic ramping up to take in the festivities and enjoy the energy and people-friendly vibe. This popular location is bustling with excitement as restaurants and bars create outdoor patios and other businesses expand into the street.

The DPM was introduced in 2020 as a way to bring foot traffic into the city’s downtown and to give businesses some added attention during the pandemic. It was such a hit, that it’s been an annual event ever since.

Entertainment is also on offer with a variety of free performances and events taking place throughout the summer. For 2024, the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador announced it would provide $194,000 in funding to the City to support Year of the Arts initiatives. This funding will support the introduction of new initiatives for the Downtown Pedestrian Mall, including Markets on Water, Music on Water and Public Art displays.
