“Leave the car at home and join the fun this Sunday,” says Mayor Mike Clay. “Car-Free Day is going to be bigger and better than last year – with more booths and more entertainment, as well as a mini train, obstacle course, and food trucks – and it’s all happening on St. Johns Street in the heart of Moody Centre. Meet our local business owners, learn about sustainable transportation options, and enjoy a variety of free activities with your friends and family.”
Enjoy live music, including classic reggae band Mostly Marley and Clavinova Nights, who perform jazz music with a blend of blues and upbeat dance music.
Restaurants will be serving up special treats and food trucks will be on site. Over at Brewers’ Row, stop by the beer garden (family friendly) at Queens Street Plaza.
Get active with the parkour obstacle course, rock climbing, street hockey, face painting, and a bicycle skills and safety zone. Browse more than 120 booths presented by local businesses and artisans.
St. Johns Street, between Douglas and Moody streets, will be closed to all vehicle traffic from 6:00am to 10:00pm on August 19, 2018. Commuters are strongly advised to take alternative routes. Visit the City’s website to view the Car-Free Day traffic management summary.
Members of the public are encouraged to leave their car at home, and walk, bike, or take public transit to the celebration.

On Car-Free Day, the Shoreline Shuttle will run from 12:00pm to midnight, with a temporary bus stop added on Clarke Street between Kyle Street and Queens Street. Due to the road closure on St. Johns Street, a detour will be in effect.
