Downtown Courtenay SummerNight Markets

Year 2 coming at you 2018!

Comox Valley Arts and the Downtown Courtenay Business Improvement Association have joined forces to bring this new and fanciful addition to liven up our downtown core throughout the summer, offering a fresh, urban experience for locals and visitors alike.

  • 2018 - Every Friday from June 22nd until September 7th, 4-9pm
  • Local merchants, artists and makers
  • Buskers and food vendors
  • Community tent

NEW LOCATION THIS YEAR - 5th Street & England Ave - more compact, more exciting, more "night market-like", we'll be invoking a festive environment each week, and filling the street with vendors of all sorts, unique and entertaining buskers, food, farmers, djs and some special events, too!

A DIFFERENT MIX EACH WEEK, so mark it on your calendar to come downtown and experience more
... meet friends, make friends, find a treasure, have a laugh... we'll look forward to seeing you!

We welcome a wide range of vendors from throughout the Comox Valley and beyond. We seek to bring new and unique products to our visitors and welcome your addition!

Vendor Registration is OPEN

Vendor registration is a 3-EASY-STEP process.

Step 2. Complete the details form HERE

Step 3. You will be directed back to this website to pay your fees after you complete that form. Fees may be paid by Paypal, Credit Card or eTransfer.


Unique to this market is our community engagement & education zone. A barrier-free place where visitors can learn something new (and FUN)... from you!

We will supply the tent and a small sound system, tables & chairs (if needed).

We will include your "seminar" in the upcoming week's advertising, including your logo if provided, and social media.

You will pay a promotional fee (cash or product), and bring everything else that you need.

To propose a presentation, CLICK HERE.


If you've got a secret talent... or a not so secret talent... that you'd like to share with our audiences, and put your "hat" out to them, we're interested to meet you!

We have 3 busking spots within the market zone, each week, open for your brilliance. We will only allow ONE guitar-based performer per week. Other musical talents are encouraged... and ONE spot will be exclusively for non-musical buskers (unless there are none available for that week).

We are actively seeking sponsors!

If you're looking for a great way to be in front of a big, engaged, buying audience... in Downtown Courtenay... consider becoming a sponsor for our stage, signage and social zone activities. If you are interested in discussing how sponsorship can benefit you, please contact Lori at [email protected]
