Location: Commercial Street, Downtown Nanaimo.
When: Every Thursday from June 20th—August 29th.

The downtown Night Market returns this evening from 5 PM—9 PM! Running every Thursday evening this Summer until August 29th, we recommend that you don’t miss out on this great FREE event in downtown Nanaimo.

Enjoy artisan vendors, crafters, food producers, and downtown merchants up and down Commercial Street.

Be sure to visit the Food Truck Circle on Diana Krall Plaza. Live entertainment will be staged at several points and a variety of family activities like bouncy castles and climbing walls will be offered to visitors. A self-guided Arts & Culture Walk will be promoted as well.

“I super excited to have this event return for its second year after such a great success in 2018. Let’s see those crowds double downtown this 2019!”—Kim Smyth, CEO Nanaimo Chamber of Commerce.

Parking is free at the Bastion Parkade and parking lots and meters on Wallace, Wentworth, Cavan and Selby Streets are also free starting at 5 pm.

CHLY will be there taking photos, and recording station IDs to help promote the event.

I hope to see you there!

PS: You’ll likely see me eating some Cold Front Gelato! 😋🍧
