A fundraising tradition returns with the night market on Oak Bay Avenue next week.

The first Oak Bay Village Night Market in two years offers artisanal offerings of food, product and beverages June 8. Among the many vendors, Tillicum elementary principal Jeff Duyndam will pedal away on the front lawn of municipal hall as a fundraiser. Duyndam is a member of the 2022 Cops for Cancer Tour de Rock team set to cycle from Port Alice to Victoria this fall.

He shares the space with Paul Kilshaw making magic, and the Oak Bay United Church hosting crafts and activities including a scavenger hunt.
