Welcome to where it all began... in 2005 we kicked off our first Car Free Day right here on the Drive.
Commercial Drive is a creative and eclectic neighbourhood east of downtown. There are many unique shopping, food and entertainment destinations, and the community has a love for its heritage history.
Our festival stretches across 15 blocks featuring amazing 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 generously re-routes the Commercial Drive bus nearby on the festival day. With bus and skytrain options conveniently accessible to the festival there are so many ways to get here car-free!
With over 200 visual and performing artists, this "must attend festival" has become a signature event in the lower mainland. This free, family event features live musical performances, artists and artisans show casing a myriad of mediums, live demonstrations, a children's venue and special performance surprises all day long!
