Car Free Days 2022
Since 2008, Car Free Vancouver Society has hosted Car Free Days along Commercial Drive, Main Street, and the West End to nurture and grow the car free culture. By blocking off major thoroughfares, Car Free Days gave people the chance to experience what cities could be like with more space for pedestrians, not cars.
In 2020, the pandemic forced Car Free Days to pivot to an online format, where we held virtual concerts, scavenger hunts, and audio tours. In 2021, we safely engaged with our supporters and partners to foster the community that is so important to us by holding a month-long festival that included a series of small events.
We couldn't be more excited to announce the 2022 Car Free Days dates will include:
- Commercial Drive: Saturday, September 10th (noon - 7pm) - North Grandview Highway - 1st Avenue
- Main Street: Sunday, September 18th (noon - 7pm) - 10th - 25th
- West End: Sunday, September 25th (noon - 7pm) - Denman & Davie - Denman & Robson
This year the 'car free' vision will continue to work with partners that have supported us in previous years, provide more accessibility, and foster relationships within our community.
