The highly anticipated Italian Day is coming back to Commercial Drive for its seventh consecutive year on Sunday, June 12th.
The vibrant street festival celebrates Italian culture and all of the contributions made to Vancouver by Italian immigrants and their children.
This year’s theme is “Mangiamo!” which translates to “Let’s Eat!”
It’s expected to draw a crowd of over 300,000 people—spanning across 13 blocks of Commercial Drive. The streets will be all decked out Italian-style in green, white and red.
There will be lots of activities, games, vendors, patios, food and beverage tastings, street performers and more.
