Event Details

Italian Day on The Drive is a vibrant cultural street festival celebrating Italian culture, heritage and community with over 150 street participants, comprised of partners, merchants, vendors and community organizations – and an estimated 300,000+ attendees of all ages and cultures. Commercial Drive (The Drive), home to Little Italy, is the designated location for the annual festival where the street is transformed into a lively 14 block festa. Since Italian Day’s return in 2010, the event today represents the largest one day cultural street festival in Vancouver – and perhaps in Canada. A festive community embrace, The Drive comes alive in green, white and red with piazza style animated zones, live music, food, patios, fashion, retail vendors, vehicles, activities, children’s zones and more.

Commercial Drive will be closed to vehicle traffic and parking in surrounding areas is limited. Public transit is a recommended alternative. The #20 bus runs along Clark Drive, and the event entrance is within a short walk from the Commercial/Broadway Skytrain Station.

Walk, bike or transit on Italian Day, Sunday, June 9th, 2019! Given the volume of attendees and summer heat, we encourage attendees to leave their dogs at home to keep them cool and comfortable.

Our friends from The Bicycle Valet will be on site (location to be announced) to securely park your ride for FREE while you enjoy the event.
