The Vancouver Chinatown Night Market is the first of its kind in North America. Here you experience a taste of an authentic Asian night market where a public street is transformed into a festival. It is hosted by the Vancouver Chinatown Merchants Association, which is a non-profit group, with the mandate to energize our neighbourhood.
Unfortunately the expense of setting up and taking down our Night Market has increased over the years to a point that we are unable to maintain it. With a heavy heart, we are unable to bring to you the Vancouver Chinatown Night Market this year. We thank all of the vendors, participants, and guests who have supported us over the past 17 years.
Currently, Chinatown is undergoing an exciting and dramatic facelift, with new developments and demolition near our venue. We hope that we will be able to bring back this attraction which has been an integral component of Vancouver summers once this construction is complete.
