What Do You Love About Car Free Day? What Do You Want to See at Car Free Day?

At our recent Car Free Kick-off event at The Beaumont Studios, we asked “What do you love about Car Free Day?” and “What do you want to see at Car Free Day?”

Below are the responses we received. We now need you and your friends to make some of these ideas happen at this year’s Car Free Vancouver Day festivals on Commercial Drive and Main Street and in the West End and Kitsilano on Sunday, June 16th (Father’s Day). If you can or want to bring some of these ideas to life, please get involved in this year’s festivals! No experience is necessary. Contact us if you need more information or guidance. Other ideas are also more than welcome. Be creative and wonderful!
