Italian Day 2016


Now into its seventh year since its return in 2010, Italian Day on The Drive represents the celebration of Italian culture and the contributions made to Vancouver by Italian immigrants and their children. A vibrant cultural street festival, Italian Day is a community driven event, attracting over 300,000 people and spanning 13 blocks along Commercial Drive in a day long celebration, while showcasing all that is Italian to Vancouver’s multi-cultural community of all ages. Like a piazza in full swing in a sea of green, white and red, the street comes alive with Italian musical performances, hands-on activities and games, vendors, patios, food and beverage tastings, street performers, classic vehicle exhibits and so much more.

Choices Markets on the Drive will be celebrating our second Italian Day with an epic event: cracking an entire wheel of fresh italian parmesan cheese. Chef Antonio will be on the scene and giving out free samples. We’ll also have our prize wheel spinning, and a by donation BBQ supporting C.L.I.C.K.
