Fourth annual Oak Bay Village Night Market kicks off June 20

The Oak Bay Village Night Market is returning for a fourth season

The Oak Bay Village Night Market is returning for a fourth season, offering a wide variety of locally-produced art, crafts, jewellery and farm produce on the third Wednesday of the summer months. Restaurant patios are open, street food is available and local artists and crafter exhibits contribute to a European-style market experience.

More than 90 artist vendors will present a variety of goods including wood turned bowls and cutting boards, greeting cards, glass art, paper casting, fabric arts, jewellery, preserves, toys, pottery, hats, clothing and more. There is a mixture of new and returning vendors offering a broad range of creative items.

“We are pleased to see the market has continued to attract local artists, crafters, artisan breadmakers and food producers,” says Elizabeth Smith, Oak Bay Business Improvement Association President. “The market turns Oak Bay Avenue into a community gathering place where people can enjoy local music and see the works of the many talented people in our community.”

A number of Oak Bay Village merchants will be open for special market activities.  From 4 to 6 p.m. Eclectic Gallery is holding a ceramic workshop for kids with artist Harumi Ota. Children will be able to paint their designs on pre-fired food safe vessels and have them re-fired. Participation is by donation.

A Tour de Rock barbecue, which raises funds to support Oak Bay’s Tour de Rock rider, will be held in front of the Fairway Market.

A variety of musicians will provide musical entertainment including a 10 piece jazz band in front of Oak Bay Bistro, fiddle music and the Holly Tree Morris dancers.

The Oak Bay Village Night Markets will be held, rain or shine June 20, July 18, August 15, September 19 between 4 and 8 p.m. in the 2100 and 2200 blocks of Oak Bay Avenue. Additional details will be posted.
