This Father’s Day, step into the past, in the days before motor vehicles ruled the roost and join us at the street party of the year!
Car Free YYJ is coming back on June 17th, and will cover nine blocks on Douglas Street from Chatham/Caledonia to Courtney Street from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
With over 350 local artists, makers, and activations created by local businesses and organizations, this year’s event is set to surpass the 30,000 visitors that attended it last year.
Bring the whole family over for some all-ages fun! Aside from the hundreds of vendors, Car Free YYJ also features five stages with live entertainment, a 5,000 square foot park on Douglas Street, multiple all-ages licensed food and beverage areas and a 19+ Beer Garden for the grown ups.
Victoria Buzz will also be setting up a tent at the event, so make sure to come find us for a game of golf or plinko provided by Four Frames Photo Booth, for a chance to win amazing prizes!
