Callout for Organizers

Hello to all Car-Free superstars!

Car Free Vancouver Day 2010 will once again envelop our town in forward-looking fun, on Sunday June 20th – Father’s Day.

Now is your chance to get involved, get creative, meet some awesome folks, and help co-create the city of your dreams. If you love Car Free Day, please consider stepping up to take a creative leadership role in this amazing event.

Last year’s Car Free Day brought over 150,000 people out to play in the streets, and to change how they see their city. This year we hope to add more nodes and open more space for more people. This is a 100% volunteer organized event, with over 300 volunteers – and we need your help to make this magic happen.

Car-Free superstars, please step up now! You can contribute in whatever way turns you on, to whatever extent you feel able.

Some cool organizing opportunities (Pods) at each Fest may include:

  • core organizing
  • day-of logistics (barricades, eco-pod, setup, etc.)
  • volunteer coordination
  • volunteer support
  • community business liaison
  • street performers
  • vendors
  • non-profit organizations
  • street art
  • kids activities
  • donation collection
  • stage management
  • communications
  • graphics, promotion and merchanise
  • community outreach

AND MORE…join a Pod, head one up, or invent your own.

We have confirmed CFVD 2010 Fests on Commercial Drive, Main Street, the West End, and Kits. We’re open to more Fest nodes, so if you are
interested in sparking one up in your area, get in touch – we have lots of experience, materials, and contacts to support you.
