In the past, Car Free Day Commercial Drive happened on the same dates as the other Car Free Day celebrations. However, in 2017, the Commercial Drive celebration decided to move to July.
The Car Free Day Commercial Drive festival stretches across 15 blocks and features local artisans, musicians, community activities, delicious food, tons of entertainment and activities for all ages. As the place that Car Free Day began, Commercial Drive stays true to its grassroots beginnings and the story behind the festival. There is a strong message of advocacy and activism for providing car free spaces and green culture for the community.
Translink has generously re-routed transit on that day so you can get there car-free!
