Now in its 7th year, the annual Italian Day street festival returns to Commercial Drive on Sunday, June 12th. Carrying special significance this year is the eight-block official ‘Little Italy’ designation on Commercial Drive, which was approved by the City of Vancouver this past April. The designation celebrates over 60 years of Italian heritage on The Drive, which is a thriving heart of close to 30 Italian businesses today, some of which have been on the Drive for over 50 years.
As Vancouver’s largest cultural street festival, drawing over 300,000 attendees and spanning 13 blocks, the Drive will come alive in a sea of green, white and red, featuring entertainment, activities, vendors and attractions. This year’s theme represents a favourite Italian pastime – eating! Mangiamo!
