It promotes the growth of car-free zones and puts a spotlight on a number of Vancouver’s communities and small businesses.

Main Street is the biggest of Vancouver’s festivals and spans 21 blocks from Broadway and 30th, in the heart of Mount Pleasant.

Entering its 12th year, visitors can expect 15 stages and a number of miniature festivals along the entire street, with kid-zones, skateboarders, funky artisan shops, and food vendors.
