Saturday September 25 | 12 – 6 PM

The Autumn Shift Festival on Main Street will be a street party celebrating the change in seasons as well as the shift in attitude towards sustainability, eating local and an increased interest in urban gardening. Hosted by the Mount Pleasant BIA, this event takes place on Saturday, September 25th from noon until 6 PM. Main Street will be a car-free oasis from Broadway to 12th Avenue. The GAM girls will have all the GAM goods there for sale including Equinox Apparel, so go visit!

This free, fun, family friendly event will feature live music, improv and comedy acts, a merchant’s market, a farmer’s market, local artists, great community participation and lots of exciting activities for children.

The two live stages will showcase local musicians and performers. Science World, BC Hydro Power Smart, Mount Pleasant Community Centre, the Vancouver Public Library and the Drift Festival will make sure the kids have a great time. The Mount Pleasant BIA will offer free cotton candy and popcorn. BLIM will be back on Main Street with a market showcasing their unique brand of arts and crafts.
