Car-Free Festival on the Drive

Car-Free Festival on the Drive

Join the Commerical Drive Car-Free Festival, Sunday, June 14th, all day until 8pm. I’d love to tell you how to volunteer, what to expect, what time the bands go onstage, etc, but the poster they emailed out is too small to read. Just show up and have fun!

Volunteers also needed, apply here.

UPDATE: found some details over on their website. Since these deets don’t agree with the above, I’d be conservative and follow the below:
