Car Free Day (carfreevancouver.org) is an enormously popular event in several Vancouver neighbourhoods each year.
“Car Free Day celebrates the vibrancy of Vancouver’s diverse neighbourhoods by organizing a multi-site annual arts and culture festival that reclaims traffic thoroughfares as community focused public spaces. This allows artists, local residents, performers, artisans, non-profits, and businesses to interact, engage, and re-imagine spaces normally reserved for vehicle traffic. We continue to be a green and grassroots effort, directed and organized by the local residents in each Car Free Day neighbourhood.”
Mark your calendars for these dates and check the official website for details (and volunteering). On Twitter: @CarFreeYVR
