Car Free Day rolls onto Douglas Street

The Downtown Victoria Business Association is launching Victoria’s first Car Free Day on June 21

If you have a car, don’t plan on driving it down Douglas Street on Saturday, June 21.

The Downtown Victoria Business Association is launching Victoria’s first Car Free Day on Douglas Street on June 21.

Car Free Day will be spread out over six blocks of Douglas Street from Herald to Fort streets from noon to 6 p.m. The day will include music and entertainment, and the streets will be lined with retail, business and food vendors.

The event, which was modelled after Vancouver’s Car Free day, is a chance to celebrate Victoria as Canada’s most walkable city.
