The Victoria-Beacon Hill RA is pleased to represent the BC Greens at this year's Car Free YYJ. Held every year on Father’s Day and taking over nine city blocks along Douglas Street, the day-long celebration includes five stages with live entertainment, a 4,000-square-foot park, multiple all-ages licensed food and beverage areas, a beer garden, more than 400 local artists and makers as, well as activities created by local businesses and organizations.
Car Free YYJ is also honoured to host the First Peoples’ Festival which presents a complete day of programming, vendors and food in celebration of Canada’s First Peoples’ culture.
Protecting your health
BC Greens recognize that airborne illnesses and pollutants pose a significant health risk to everyone, especially the young, elderly, and immunocompromised, while caregivers, healthcare professionals, and support staff come into regular contact with vulnerable persons. When choosing venues, BC Greens prioritize outdoor spaces, and indoor spaces with good ventilation. In closed indoor spaces, we encourage attendees to wear well-fitting masks (N95, KN95, or KF94), especially during the respiratory-illness season.
Creating safe spaces
The BC Green Party is committed to providing an environment free of discrimination and harassment, where all individuals are treated with respect and dignity, can contribute fully and have equal speaking opportunities. To support this commitment, all event attendees will be expected to follow the standards of our Safe Spaces Participant's Guide.
