Car Free Day on Commercial Drive

Car Free Day 2013

Frying fish over fire, parading drummers, healing gardens, DJs spinning beats and all of your friends and neighbours hanging out. Commercial Drive is the birthplace of Car Free Vancouver Day — thank you, you lovely rebels, you! We’re getting back to the roots of this festival this year which means less planning from us and more involvement from you. This is YOUR day to bring yourself to your community. Bring your PASSIONS, your ENERGY and your CREATIVITY to the street!

Location: We’ll be celebrating on the Drive from Venables St. to North Grandview Hwy/Central Valley Greenway Bike Lane
Time: Festival runs from noon to 7 p.m. and the street is closed from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.
