Be a Barricade Volunteer for Car-Free Vancouver (Commercial Drive)

The first annual Car-Free Vancouver Day, on Sunday June 15, 2008 ushered in the next phase in this bold experiment that had been gradually happening in Vancouver for many years. It took the car-free meme to the whole city, and represented the next level in our evolution toward healthy communities, authentic cultural celebrations, and car-free streets. On that day, FOUR communities presented their own Car-Free Festivals: Kitsilano, West End, Main Street, and Commercial Drive. Each Festival was envisioned and organized by the local core organizers, and each had a unique flavour.

This year we’re doing it all again, and adding even more communities to the list!

Barricade Volunteers, or Barricadistas as we have affectionately grown to call them, and the glue of this very event! These super hero volunteers stand at a barricade, keeping the cars at bay, helping passersby, and observing the fun at the festival!

Shifts are only 2 hours long, and there are 6 throughout the day.

Without these volunteers, the festival doesn\'t happen! Volunteers get access to our green room full of delicious food, prizes, and more!

If you are interested in doing one or more barricade shifts, please send the following information to
