Car Free Day Vancouver 2012

By Alexandra Roper | 8:30 am PST, Tue May 22, 2012 | Speak Up

In a little less than one month, Car Free Vancouver Day will be coming to town! The festivities are to take place on the weekend of Saturday June 16th (Kitsilano) and Sunday June 17th/Father’s Day (Commercial Drive, Main Street, West End and Kitsilano).

This annual, grassroots event transforms our Vancouver streets into hip-happening car-free community festivals, and each location has its own twist! For example, Kitsilano will be hosting individual block parties, rather than closing off a major street. Car Free Vancouver Day encompasses our city’s evolution toward healthy communities, authentic cultural celebrations, and car-free streets.

Please keep in mind that Car Free Vancouver has no sponsors, only support from individuals like you. If you are interested in supporting this event, you can make a donation or sign up as a (much needed) volunteer at http://www.carfreevancouver.org/.
