Frequently asked questions

Who runs Car Free Day? Are you run by the City?


We're independently run by the Car Free Vancouver Society, a nonprofit dedicated to nurturing healthy communities that are designed for people, not just cars. Learn more here.

Can my band perform?


Maybe! If you are interested in performing at a Car Free event, we would love to hear from you. Please email [email protected] for more information on upcoming performance opportunities.

How do I get there?


We recommend taking public transportation, walking or cycling to the events. All of our events are accessible by multiple transit options. Our larger events often have a bike valet, too!

Where can I park?


We are a car-free event that encourages you to think about how you get around the city, and as such, we don't offer any parking. Please obey local parking laws when finding parking on the side streets, and be respectful of the neighbourhood. Some areas are designated as locals-only, and we have no control over this. New to public transit? Please consult Translink's handy Trip Planner, found here

How can I volunteer?


Please visit this page to sign up to volunteer! We're still a very volunteer-powered festival event with limited staff resources, and we welcome whatever support and time you can give.
