Car Free Day is back for 2019 — and we need YOU! 

We are looking for enthusiastic volunteers for our annual free, community-run street festivals that have been encouraging car-free, green communities for 15 years!

Car Free Day began on Commercial Drive in protest to a highway widening project and the effects of increasing automobile traffic in the neighbourhood. After expanding to festivals across the city, the purpose remains the same: reclaiming and reimagining public space through celebration of the community!

  • West End/Denman Street – Saturday, June 15, 2019
  • Main Street – Sunday, June 16, 2019
  • Commercial Drive – Sunday, July 7, 2019

We are looking for friendly, energetic, and reliable people (no experience necessary!) who want to be a part of an amazing event — volunteer for one, two, or all three festivals!

If you do have experience volunteering for other events, let us know! We would love to find a fit for you in one of our day-of leadership roles.

Whether it’s just a couple of hours, or you're eager to jump in all day – we have a role for you! Our volunteers are busy keeping our streets safe by redirecting cars away from the festival, helping the kids in our family zone have an awesome time, providing information to attendees, keeping our streets clean & green, and so much more. We even have a bike team that moves things around the festival to keep it all car-free!

Whatever the role, every volunteer is a friendly face making sure the public is having a great time.

Our volunteers have access to food and giveaways during the festival, and are invited to our post-festival celebrations to acknowledge the work everyone puts in!

Sign up to volunteer at http://www.carfreevancouver.org/get-involved or email volunteer@carfreevancouver.org for more information. We'll be in touch soon with the next steps to get you involved!
