Chinatown Summer Night Market
Hot on the tails of the popularity of Vancouver’s Night Market phenomenon, Victoria has created a summer night market all its own. Surprising to some, Victoria’s Chinatown is actually the oldest Chinatown in Canada. It never fails to intrigue and boasts hole-in-the-wall eateries, mystical imported items and even the famed Fan Tan Alley (which measures 0.9 metres across at its narrowest point).
Merchants, vendors and artisans take over the streets of Victoria’s Chinatown on the last Wednesday of each month, solidifying a partnership between the Victoria Chinese Commerce Association and the area businesses that make Victoria’s Chinatown so one-of-a-kind. The Night Market will be highlighted with tai chi demonstrations, brush painting, calligraphy and vibrant entertainment!
