With the festival taking over 16 blocks of the inner city, it's best to take transit, bike or walk to the festival, said Rempel. 

Road closures run along Fourth Street S.W., from 12th Avenue to Elbow Drive, and along 17th Avenue from Second Street to Fifth Street S.W.

There will be six stages with more than 70 performances throughout the day. Festival organizers said it's an opportunity for local artists to gain exposure with new audiences.

As well as the entertainment, there will be local es showcasing their creations.

"We have all sorts of vendors, everything from handmade jewelry to food trucks to artisanal hot sauces," she said. 

"There's something for everybody to shop and look at."

It is a priority for CBC to create products that are accessible to all in Canada including with visual, hearing, motor and cognitive challenges.
