Unless you’ve been living under a rock this past few weeks, you probably already know about the new initiative by the Downtown New Westminster BIA: a street / night market that takes place along Front Street called Fridays on Front. Starting July 7, Fridays on Front runs from 5-8pm every Friday night until the end of August in the 600 block of Front Street (between McKenzie and 6th). The family friendly market will feature artisan vendors from the New West Farmers Market and New West Craft, live music from the New Westminster Arts Council, Front Street businesses and of course, our favourite Food Trucks form the Columbia StrEAT Food Truck Fest.
The Downtown New West BIA has teamed up with Steel & Oak Brewing Co. to fully license Front Street. You’ll be able to grab a Steel & Oak beer or glass of wine from Vancouver’s first bar truck, the Vegabond Bar Truck, then stroll throughout the event, enjoying live music, unique shopping, a riverfront breeze and scenic views.
It gets even better, admission is FREE and the family friendly night markets are just mere steps away from two Skytrain stations. With new vendors and food trucks each week, reserve your Fridays this summer for an experience that is sure to be the talk of the town.
Presented by the Downtown New West BIA in partnership with the City of New Westminster, Bosa Development, New West Farmers Market, the Arts Council of New Westminster, and Steel & Oak Brewing Co.
