Car Free Day on Main street

Car Free Day is coming back this year.
I'll be helping out at this festival but would love to share this is a great opportunity with everyone.

This will be an 'organic event' where you can discover the culture and main street community at your own pace. If anyone would like to facilitate a group, feel free to co-host this event. (i would love to but I'll be at the info booth all day, drop by to say hi to me)

some of us will be waiting inside kafkas before breaking into smaller groups

    Lots of fun. Better then last year but I think that's because I dint know menu people and Ed was new too so no one knew who he was too. (he was the host last year)

    Just like I thought I won't be able to Host and most likely not attend, if I do it will not be until later in the afternoon :( .... Mila, I made you Host since you said you could, hope you still can, Anna's a Host as well. Hope to see you guys later!

      Andrew, Car Free Day only means no cars will be on Main St that day. So no irony if you drive. :-)

      Getting around town by car would be a challenge as the city has given out dozens of permits to neighbourhoods to have their own block parties on car free day. (I tired to get a free permit + grant for an Extremely Shy Block party but we didn't have enough people to collect the FREE gov handout)

      If you want to save yourself stress, you can simply take the 99B-line to kafkas. There MAY be parking on 12th ave but they're likely to be gone by then
