Car Free YYJ is Sunday!


Car Free YYJ, presented by the Downtown Victoria Business Association, will be back on Douglas Street on Sunday, June 17, 2018 from 11 a.m. - 6 p.m.

Car Free YYJ will take over Douglas Street for the city's fourth annual community celebration with vendors, music, and much more! 

Extending over nine City blocks, the day-long celebration includes four stages with live entertainment, a 4,000 square foot park on Douglas Street, multiple all-ages licensed food and beverage areas, a 19+ Beer Garden, more than 350 local artists and makers as well as activations created by local businesses and organizations.

This year, Car Free YYJ is honoured to host the First Peoples’ Festival which presents a complete day of programming, vendors and food in celebration of Canada’s First Peoples’ culture. 

Bring Dad and the entire family on Father’s Day to stroll Douglas Street for this free event!
