Drive Fest Car Free Day


The date has changed for Commercial Car Free Day!

This year the Commercial Drive Festival will be held on Sunday, July 9th, 2017!

The festival is held on Commercial Drive from Venables to North Grandview. Translink has generously re-routed transit on that day so you can get there car-free!

Commercial Car Free Day

Known as Vancouver’s “Little Italy”, Commercial Drive is a creative and bohemian neighbourhood east of downtown. There are many unique shopping, food and entertainment destinations, and the community has a love for its heritage history. 

The 15 block long street festival features amazing local artisans, musicians, vendors & community groups, delicious food straight from the Drive, and tons of entertainment and activities for all ages. As the place that Car Free Day began, Commercial Drive stays true to its’ grassroots beginnings and the story behind the festival. There is a strong message of advocacy and activism for providing car free spaces and green culture for the community.
