The eclectic neighborhood of Commercial Drive is a vibrant hub of cultural diversity, culinary delights and community spirit. Offering a unique blend of old-world charm and modern energy, The Drive is a testament to Vancouver’s multicultural tapestry.

One of the defining characteristics of this neighborhood is its diverse community. A walk down the bustling streets brings a kaleidoscope of languages, aromas, and languages from around the world. Italian delis, Greek tavernas, Vietnamese pho joints, and Mexican taquerias stand storefront to storefront with trendy cafes, organic markets, artisanal shops and vintage boutiques.

Encapsulating a strong sense of community spirit, residents take pride in their neighborhood and actively participate in local events, festivals, and initiatives. A favourite amongst locals and partygoers, Italian Day will return this June for its annual celebration of Italian culture and heritage. Commercial Drive will transform into a 14-block car-free zone with plenty of merchants, food vendors, and entertainment to discover throughout the day-long event.
