The Commercial Street Night Market Returns!

*2024 applications will begin in late February or March*

The Commercial Street Night Market brings life, colour and the sounds of summer to downtown Nanaimo. Over 11 weeks, the Market will host nearly 200 artisan vendors, more than a dozen food trucks, multiple musical entertainers, and a kids’ zone creating a festive family vibe. The Night Market was created to bring locals and tourists into the heart of our city to showcase our local restaurants and businesses. The artisan vendors help demonstrate the creative community you’ll find in the mid-Island. We’ve also introduced a Bike Valet Service in collaboration with Hub City Cycles! Commercial Street will be closed down from 2PM-10PM on Thursday’s this summer until August 31. Mid Island Towing is removing cars that have not vacated the premises to Port Place Mall Parking lot by the Wendy’s at no cost to the vehicle owner. The Commercial Street Night Market is located on the traditional, unceded territory of Snuneymuxw First Nation and we pay respect for the opportunity to live, work, and host this event on their land. FAQ: Can I bring my dog? Yes! As long as they are on leash. Where do I park? Paid parking is available at underground parkades at Port Theatre and the Conference Centre. Free parking is available at the Bastion Street Parkade and on street level at locations surrounding the Market. Try our Park N Ride Service from North Town Centre, or park your bike for free in our secure Bike Valet Compound.  Will there be toilets? Yes, we have portables onsite. Will stores be open as well? Many merchants stay open for the entire market. How do I find out the entertainment schedule for this week?  Check out our Facebook and Instagram pages Is there a list of vendors?
