Event Description

There is no better place to be than Car Free Vancouver Day on Fathers' Day, June 16th. On Commercial Drive (Venables to North Grandview), Denman Street (Robson to Davie) downtown, all over Kitsilano (block parties Saturday and Sunday), and Main Street (from Broadway to 30th Ave--20+ blocks!), the streets will come alive with literally hundreds of thousands of engaged and happy people.

For our part, Village will be not just on Main Street at the intersection of 13th Avenue, BUT WE WILL BE THE INTERSECTION! Our close to 20 tent Demonstration Sustainable Transition Village will include our extensive library, music, movies, chicken coops, bees, solar panels, homesteading resources, seed libraries, neighbourhood food networks, gardening, permaculture, emergency preparedness, a plastic-free zero waste kitchen display, visioning, kid-oriented carpentry and painting activities, refreshments, community groups like Be The Change, SPEC, and Cottonwood Community Garden, and SO MUCH MORE. In other words, imagine your ideal neighbourhood!

And in the West End, we'll be tabling along with the West End Neighbourhood Food Network in front of the WE Community Centre.  

Read an article here about the festival, featuring Village Founder Ross Moster, and watch a short movie here to see how it is organized and view what it looked like on its first year on Main Street.

Be there, be part of the largest CarFree Day exhibitor, and enjoy the spirit of safe, open streets, Transition-style!

If you would like to volunteer to help with setup (10 am-noon), at a Village info table (between noon and 7 pm), or with breakdown, or have tables, chairs or tents we can borrow (currently looking for 3-6 more tents) OR if you would like to promote/display a community project, group, or activity you're involved in, please contact volunteer@villagevancouver.ca.
