Summer Night Market Coming Up

August 13 at River Market

NWC-SUMMERMARKETSummer nights should be celebrated. Join New West Craft for their Summer Night Market on Saturday, August 13 from 6pm to 9:30pm at River Market in downtown New Westminster.

New West Craft aims to create a welcoming environment for local makers, artists and crafters to showcase their work to the community. New West Craft provides a fun shopping environment where shoppers can feel good about supporting local. Nothing beats buying something directly from the maker.

With over 50 vendors, there is something for everyone. Shop trendy baby gear, stationary, custom t-shirts, jewellery, leather goods, art, soaps, candles, home decor and more! Vendors will be set up outside along the boardwalk and spread throughout the River Market’s two floors.

Feelin' it DecalsNew West Craft is thrilled to have several River Market shops and restaurants joining in on the fun. Grab a bite to eat from Re-Up BBQ, Longtail Kitchen or Wild Rice and browse Mid-Century Modern HOME, Bunches & Blooms, Jolene’s Natural Soap, Shnoo and the Pachooch and Great Wall Tea Co.

Their special summer event will feature over 50 vendors selling handmade goods, live music, food and more. River Market is a great space during the day and New West Craft can’t wait to bring it to life at night.

West+WindSpend a summer evening at one of the best spots in the city. Enjoy the smooth sounds of local musician Sam Cave and relax to the acoustic vibe of father and daughter duo Emma and Roland Nipp. This event is perfect for the whole family: grab the kids and get creative with a sand art workshop hosted by local sand artist Roger Lee outside on the boardwalk ($5 drop-in fee)

 

It’s going to be an epic night in New Westminster! The New West Craft Summer Night Market coincides with the New West Pride Columbia Street Party: two great events happening downtown. New West Craft is proudly presented by The Arts Council of New Westminster.
