Since 2011, Vancouverites have flocked to Commercial Drive each April for the Annual Earth Day Celebration, March and Festival! We hope to see you there!

Join Windermere Secondary School’s Youth for Climate Justice Now as we carry on this fun, family-friendly tradition by coming together to celebrate the planet.

This year's parade will begin at Commercial and Broadway at 1:00 PM (view)

And the festival continues on at Grandview Park from 1:45 to 3:00 PM (view)

   Festival Advice 

TIP #1: If planning to drive somewhere in the area between just before 1 pm and around 2 pm, don’t plan to go north on Commercial between Grandview Highway and William Street. The entire two lanes of northbound traffic will be full of people marching. It’s not a long parade, but traffic is completely blocked in the one direction for the duration of the parade.

TIP #2: Don’t drive to the Earth Day Parade. It’s Earth Day after all. Take public transit, walk or ride your bike!

TIP #3: Don’t forget to take your reusable water bottle, environmentally-friendly costume and your camera!

TIP #4: While you’re in the area, explore Commercial Drive. It’s a fabulous street with all kinds of interesting shops, cafes and restaurants. It’s also a great place for people watching.
