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.
Village won't just be on Main Street at the intersection of 13th Avenue, BUT WE WILL BE THE INTERSECTION! Our close to 20 tent Demo Sustainable Village will include our extensive library, 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!
Be there, be part of one of the largest Car Free Day exhibitors, and enjoy the spirit of safe, open streets, Transition-style!
If you'd like to volunteer to help us with setup (10 am-noon), at a Village info table during the day (between noon and 7 pm), or with breakdown, or have tables, chairs or tents we can borrow (we're 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
