This year’s event will be on Saturday, June 17th.
The festival will be held on Denman Street from Robson to Davie. Access is easy via transit, cycling or walking! Translink has generously re-routed transit on the festival day.
New Initiative: Activity Grants
This year, Car Free Day is excited to launch its Activity Grants initiative. Car Free Day will be supporting local community groups in need of financial support for their festival activities including live music or performance, community engagement, and environmental advocacy.
Car Free Day wants to encourage Vancouver to dream big, experiment, and play in the streets. Applications are open to Metro Vancouver individuals, groups, nonprofits, and businesses.
Translink will be generously re-routing transit during the festivals to ensure that festival-goers can attend car-free!
Car Free Day Vancouver is an annual multi-site arts and culture festival that transforms traffic thoroughfares into community-focused public spaces. This event allows artists, local residents, performers, artisans, nonprofits, and businesses to interact, engage, and re-imagine spaces normally reserved for vehicle traffic.
The event is a green and grassroots effort, directed and organized by the local residents in each Car Free Day neighbourhood. Car Free Day festivals have won several awards and attract over 400,000 attendees each year.
