It does not appear long ago that the city council voted on whether the Formula E championship should come to Vancouver or not.
In July 2021, the city confirmed that the Vancouver E Prix would take place in False Creek from June 30 – July 2, 2022, and now more details have been released.
This will be the first E Prix Championship held here. The event will feature a track hosting the only FIA-certified all-electric World Championship race, superstar musical performances and climate change conferences. Tickets go on sale Friday, October 8th.
Called the Canadian E-Fest, this event could generate up to $ 80 million in economic value for Vancouver, in addition to 3,000 jobs.
Furthermore, the race aims to increase awareness of and demonstrate environmental management. Certified by the UN, all cars involved will be net zero (emission). The whole weekend will be a demonstration of electric transport with several events planned.
The all-electric racing Formula E cars will be driven around the city waterfront, twisting and turning around the streets on the edge of False Creek, including walking in front of Rogers Arena.
What to expect
The festival will also feature plenty of off-track entertainment.
Tickets include admission to the immersive Allianz E-Village. Fans will experience the following:
- Amphitheater-watch artists live on stage as well as on-screen entertainment
- Formula E Gaming Arena – racing simulators with competitions and prizes
- Children’s area – exploration and activities to challenge young minds, including an interactive playground
- Food court – a wide range of food and beverages, including Allianz Hydration Stations
- Roaming entertainment – performances from singers, dancers, BMX riders, fitness challenges and more
Tickets go on sale live on the Canadian E-Fest website on October 8, 2021.
