ABOUT DAVIE STREET
Davie Street, also known as Davie Village or the Davie District, is a proud West End neighbourhood within downtown Vancouver. Offering a thriving gay subculture, also referred to as the “gaybourhood”, or the “gay village”.
This particular Davie Street district runs between Burrard and Jervis, and is named in honour of A.E.B. Davie – the 8th Premier of BC from 1887-1889. It wasn’t until 1999 that the Davie Street Business Association began to call this area “Davie Village”, with a namesake banner being commissioned by local artist Joe Average, adorning the lampposts along Davie Street.
This dual-sided banner is proudly painted with a rainbow flag and a sun design, and business owners and residents alike often fly symbols of the rainbow pride flag as well. In addition, and not to be missed, is the rainbow crosswalks as well as the bright pink garbage cans and benches. Giving added flare to an area filled with flamboyant celebration.
So whether driving in from out of town, walking over from your local downtown residence, or taking public transit from any number of outlying areas, Davie Street is completely accessible with ample parking. So make a day of it, and enjoy all that this community has to offer for everyone!
