Event Details:

Port Moody’s Car-Free Day is taking over St. Johns Street. We’re closing five blocks and having a huge street celebration, filled with local businesses, musicians, green transportation displays, delicious food, and a family-friendly Brewers Row beer garden. Check out over 130 booths, swing by the bicycle skills zone, take a ride on the mini train, and test your skills on the ninja obstacle course.  

 

Car-Free Day also features tons of live music, including:

  • Trilojay, a high-energy event band who will have you dancing, with sounds ranging from roots rock to vanguard funk;
  • Kim Gray, a local four-person garage-pop band;  
  • Clavinova Nights, a quartet of jazz crooners who blend blues with upbeat dance music; and
  • Music with Marnie, whose high-energy musical performance gets children moving and grooving.
