Tales from the West End” is an invitation to explore and experience our community through stories about our common past.

JJ Bean Coffee Roasters (1209 Bidwell Street) located in the original Maxine’s Hideaway, is a West End landmark with many tales hidden in its walls, including illicit activities that add to the colourful folklore of the West End. This is an opportunity to visit this renovated historic building, hear stories and tell your stories about the West End. Come and meet your neighbours and explore ideas to create community around the stories that contributed to creating our neighbourhood.
