Needed: Festival Volunteers – Car Free Day
Organization: Car Free Vancouver
Location: Vancouver BC (various dates and locations, see below)

Car Free Day is back for 2018 — and we need YOU! In an effort to make this year the most successful yet, we are looking for volunteers for our annual free, community-run street festival. We have been encouraging car-free, green communities for 14 years!

Car Free Day Vancouver began on Commercial Drive in protest to a highway widening project and the effects of increasing automobile traffic in the neighbourhood. In the place of traditional protest, the founders of Car Free Commercial Drive created a street festival where those from the neighbourhood could be engaged to rethink the range of uses for neighbourhood streets. It has expanded to festivals across the city, but the purpose remains the same: reclaiming and re-imagining public space through a celebration of the community!

  • West End – Saturday, June 16, 2018
  • Main Street  Sunday, June 17, 2018
  • Commercial Drive  Sunday, July 8, 2018

We are looking for friendly, energetic, and reliable people who want to be a part of an amazing event — no experience necessary! If you do have experience volunteering for other events, let us know! We would love to find you a fit in one of our bigger day-of roles.

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!

Whether you have a couple of hours for set-up/clean-up, or you're eager to jump in all day – we can find a role for you! Our volunteers will be helping with anything from 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, and so much more. Whatever the role, all of our volunteers are the friendly faces that are make sure the public is having a great time!

Sign up to volunteer at or email . We'll get in touch ASAP with more information to get you involved!
