2020 has been a strange journey so far, and it’s an unprecedented time for everyone in the world as we deal with the new COVID-19 pandemic. The Car Free Day team is watching closely as the situation develops, and from day one of the pandemic we’ve strategized how to best keep our community safe and healthy. We produce a festival series with over 300,000 attendees, and everyone’s safety has always been our number one priority. 

With safety and health in mind, we have come to the unfortunate decision that we must restructure our 2020 operations, and cancel our large-scale festivals. Our festivals will take place online and feature live performances, discussions and other fun activities. 

When/if it's safe to do so, later in 2020 the Car Free Vancouver Society will host some smaller pop-up events and activities. At this time, there is no plan to include vending opportunities at those events. 


  • Sponsor an online festival performance with a $50 donation and be featured on our Facebook event page and during the live event
  • Already applied and paid your fee? You can choose to donate your full or partial vendor fee to support our nonprofit society. All businesses donating their fee will be featured on our sponsors page until 2021 and will get shout-outs on social media. 
  • Donate a gift-certificate and participate in one of our online raffles or give-aways. Contact for more info! 

Our festival applications are closed. A very limited number of local makers and businesses will be featured on our online festival. Want to sponsor a local musician and be featured? Contact
