What’s more, the event will run from noon until 7 pm, offering guests plenty of time to enjoy the festivities during the day.

The event will offer 15 stages, unique zones and multiple mini-festivals along the street. Entertainment will include live bands, spoken word, dance, and other live performances.

TransLink has also rerouted to ensure that transit doesn’t interfere with the festival. However, guests are encouraged to walk, take transit, or ride their bikes to the festival, as it is Car Free Day.

The Main Street festival takes place on Sunday, June 16 starting at noon.
