This means the main road will be closed to traffic from Station Road at Fore St junction to Castle Street from 11:30am to 6pm.
Before 11:30am, the road will only be open to essential traffic.
Car parks will remain open but people are being asked to please consider using the bus, ring and ride, Totnes Rickshaws or Devon Lift Share.
Devon County Councillor Paula Black, local member for Totnes, is the project leader for the event.
She said: "We are all looking forward to putting Totnes on the map again as a great example in the way forward to a more economically and environmentally sustainable future.
"Car Free Day is being organised as a fun party atmosphere to celebrate all that is good in Totnes - there will be dancing in the street!"
