Bike Fest at Kitsilano Farmers Market, Sunday, June 19, 10am – 2pm, free
Bring your bike for fun, whimsy or just maintenace. Try pedal-powered flour milling. Swap gears. Get a tune-up. Enjoy free bike valet service.
Car-Free Day in Kits, Sunday, June 19, Noon-6 p.m, free
Celebrations will happen in Kitsilano, Main Street, the West End and on Commercial Drive, where the festivities were first started by community volunteers in 2005. Kitsilano is doing something different for Car Free Day. Instead of closing off a major street, people throughout Kits are hosting individual block parties with their neighbours. The Van Courier says “block parties will checkerboard Kitsilano.”
This year, Bard has moved to reserved seating, eliminating site-entry lineups. You can enter the Village up to one full hour before each performance, sip a glass of wine and take in the new pre-show In A Nutshell talks. Take Dad for a show and dinner on Sunday, with a Bard picnic by Emelle’s, ordered in advance.
