Commercial Drive

2014 is here!

Frying fish over fire, parading drummers, healing gardens, DJs spinning beats and all of your friends and neighbours hanging out. Commercial Drive is the birthplace of Car Free Vancouver Day and this year is the 10th anniversary of Drive Fest! Thank you, you lovely rebels, you! We’re getting back to the roots of this festival this year which means less planning from us and more involvement from you. This is YOUR day to bring yourself to your community. Bring your PASSIONS, your ENERGY and your CREATIVITY to the street!

Join us for the next planning committee meeting:

  • Date & Time: Sunday, March 23, 2014, 3:00-5:00 p.m.
  • Location: Mosaic Community Room, 1720 Grant Street
  • Details: Everyone is welcome. Bring a friend or two – the more the merrier! No experience necessary.
