Now in its 8th year, the annual Italian Day street festival returns to Commercial Drive on Sunday, June 11th. This vibrant cultural street festival celebrates Italian culture, heritage and respective immigrant contributions in Vancouver. The Drive, an affectionate name for Commercial Drive, is home to the annual festival which transforms the street into a lively 14-block, vehicle free, celebration and community festa. Since Italian Day’s return in 2010, the event has grown significantly – drawing over 350,000 enthusiastic attendees of all cultures and ages. Expect to enjoy over 200 street participants as well as stages with live music and theatre, street performers, classic cars, activities and displays, children’s amusement zones and more.
The Drive will come alive in a sea of green, white and red, featuring entertainment, activities, vendors and attractions. This year’s theme is what Italians are best known for: Amore!
