Hippie Walking Tour


Artist and writer Michael Kluckner will be leading Kitsilano’s on a walk down memory lane, tomorrow August 28th from 10 am to noon. Cheryl Rossi of the Vancouver Courier recently interviewed Kluckner in a recent Courier article. Kluckner points out some of the areas that will be featured on the walking tour: “West Fourth Avenue and Arbutus Street were ground zero for hippie happenings in the late 1960s”

“Kluckner will “pay homage” to the Naam 24-hour vegetarian restaurant near Fourth and Macdonald. He adds that back in the day, Banyen Books and the Kitsilano information centre, which helped with the chronic rental housing shortage and published a paper called Around Kitsilano that took jabs at the then-Kerrisdale Courier, ran across the street.

The walk accommodates 30 people. Its proceeds benefit Heritage Vancouver. The hippie tour starts at Seventh and Vine and ends at Fourth and Vine.
