It seems that not too long ago the city council was voting on whether to allow the Formula E championship to 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 to July 2, 2022, and more details have now been released.
This will be the first E Prix championship to be held here. The event will feature a track that will host the only FIA certified all-electric World Championship race, musical performances by superstars and conferences on climate change. Tickets will go on sale this Friday, October 8.
Dubbed the Canadian E-Fest, this event can generate more than $ 80 million in economic value for Vancouver, in addition to 3,000 jobs.
In addition, the race aims to raise awareness and show environmental leadership. Certified by the UN, all the cars involved will be net zero (emissions). The entire weekend will be an electric transportation demonstration with various events planned.
The fully electric Formula E race cars will be driven around the city harbor, twisting and turning through the streets on the edge of False Creek, including in front of Rogers Arena.
What to expect
The festival will also offer a lot of entertainment off the track.
Tickets include access to the immersive Allianz E-Village. Fans will be able to experience the following:
- Action Amphitheater – See the performers live on stage and entertainment on screen
- Formula E Gaming Arena: racing simulators with competitions and prizes
- Children’s area: exploration and activities to challenge young minds, including an interactive play area
- Food Court – A wide range of food and beverage options, including Allianz hydration stations
- Traveling entertainment: performances by singers, dancers, BMX riders, fitness challenges, and more
Tickets will go on sale live on the Canadian E-Fest website on October 8, 2021.
Ticket options vary greatly, depending on where you want to sit and how many days you want to attend. The initial fee for the race is $ 25 for one day, up to $ 325 for 2 days. For business access, inclusive stays, and other VIP options, there are several packages to choose from.
These are the two basic options that tickets start from:
