Where else can you find handmade organic soap, mushroom jerky, and mini eco-bots with succulent hair but at the Night Market Vancouver? Taking place on the first Friday of every month, the Night Market is a chance for small businesses to showcase their products and services in a festive environment.

Yo Soy Candles at Night MarketOff Main Street in a space shared by Boomerang and CoLab Coworking, find creativity infused into everything you see, smell, hear, and touch. Sip on local wine samples while perusing photography, or purchase some homemade hot sauce to dab on authentic tacos sold right outside while the sound of live music echoes through the doors. Venture next door to Union Chapel’s “The Annex” to explore even more and connect with local artisans.

The Night Market happens alongside Vancouver’s Downtown Association’s First Friday. Art galleries around downtown feature rotating exhibits and local artists, while restaurants may stay open late and shops lure passersby with champagne and special deals.

Find other one-night-only events occurring in the winter months, like a performance by the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra or a preview of the Portland Opera's upcoming season. Following a sold-out “Jeeves Intervenes” production, Magenta Theater is preparing for April’s show “Emma!”—a pop musical.
