FEATURED EVENTS IN YOUR CITY

Vancouver’s ever-popular Car Free Day is returning for another summer in several of the city’s most popular neighbourhoods.

The event, typically held over three days, promotes the growth of car-free zones and collaboration with a variety of Vancouver’s local communities.

Best of all, there are no cars in sight.
