Car Free Community Market

Car Free Day Vancouver is back to transform vehicle-centric streets into a public space and market, where local artisans and other vendors customers can connect safely outdoors. While smaller in size than our street festivals, our market will feature the local artisans you love to see and support at our events. 

Attendees are encouraged to walk, wheel, cycle, or take transit to the gorgeous West End to join in the fun from 11am to 5pm on Sunday, Sept 12th. Please note this market will not take place on our usual West End festival site, although it won't be far away! Find us on the 1800 block and 1900 block of Nelson St (between Chilco and Denman). 

Be sure to check out the stacked line up of local entertainment! The show, hosted by Shadae, runs all day at the stage on Nelson & Denman (by the Tim Horton's):
