The Granville Promenade will run every weekend from July 31 to September 6, 2021.


From July 31 to September 6, two blocks of Granville Street (Helmcken to Nelson and Nelson to Smithe) will be closed to all vehicular traffic, but open to the public! The street closures will take place on Saturdays and Sundays from 8:00 am to 9:00 pm and will be activated with live music, performances, and public art from 1 pm to 7 pm. The promenade aims to infuse energy, promote community in the Downtown core, and create a family-friendly environment that encourages the public to support local businesses.
