Summer by the Sea Street Market

During the lovely Tuesday evenings of summer in Parksville, BC, the Summer by the Sea Street Market is the perfect weekly stop and shop for both locals and visitors! The street market is within walking distance of our stunning beach and community park, which hosts Parksville's annual BeachFest and the Quality Foods International Sand Sculpting Competition & Exhibition. As one of the largest markets on the island, in its 14th year, our street market has fantastic participation from local merchants, as well as both full-season and drop-in vendors from all over Vancouver Island, making it just the right amount of different each week. With live music and entertainment adding to the ambience, it transforms Craig Street into an exciting place for a Tuesday evening stroll. Be prepared to love this market!

This event, organized and managed by the Parksville & District Chamber of Commerce, runs for twelve consecutive Tuesday evenings from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm, between mid June and the end of August (8:30 pm closing in late August). With the participation and following of returning and new exceptional local merchants and Vancouver Island vendors each year, who present high quality, unique and fabulous products, tasty food and live entertainment, the market has grown to 180+ weekly vendors that now consume over five city blocks on Craig Street (between Island Highway and Jensen Avenue), Middleton Avenue, and Hirst Street (between Alberni Highway and Craig Street). 

The 2017 season runs from June 13th to August 29th. Vendors interested in applying to take part in the 2017 market will have access to an online application, beginning in March of this year, on the Parksville & District Chamber of Commerce website.
