Getting Involved in Kitsilano Car Free Day Block Parties

Thank you for your interest in the Kitsilano Block Parties celebrating Car Free Vancouver Days! Here's how you can Get Involved.

Host a Block Party in Kitsilano

Visit our Host a Block Party in Kitsilano page and we’ll help you get it going. Or you can phone Lisa at 604-732-5803 or email at

For information on fun party activities, as well as tips to make sure your block party runs smoothly, download the party toolkit and Greening your Block Party.  You don’t have to live in a block of single family homes to host or take part in a block party. People in apartment towers, townhouses and condos have them too!

Entertain at a Kitsilano Block Party

If you are an entertainer, you can volunteer to perform at one or several intimate Kitsilano Block Parties.

Please note that the Kitsilano festival is different from the other main street festivals. Our Kits celebration consists of several individual small neighbourhood block parties (typically 20-60 people) that are held throughout Kitsilano for varying lengths of time on either Saturday or Sunday of Car Free Vancouver Weekend.

Your entertainment is a volunteer gig however you can discuss the possibility of passing a hat and/or permitting sales of CD's etc with the block party host.

Get the ball rolling by filling out this application or phone Lisa at 604-732-5803 or email at .  Once your application has been received, your information will be shared with all the block party hosts.  The individual block party hosts will contact you to arrange a day and time for you to perform at their block party.
