The Inglewood Night Market has been bringing some holiday cheer to the neighbourhood this November, and has held two holiday markets over the past few weekends.

Given that Calgary’s weather has begun to take its turn for the cold, organizers have moved the winter edition of the market into the retail space below the South Bank apartment complex.

Those hoping to attend the November night markets will need to purchase their $5 ticket ahead of time to reserve their place in a two-hour time slot.

The Inglewood Night Market Holiday Edition has two markets left, taking place on November 20 and 27.

Dogs are not permitted, and masks are required.

When: November 20 and 27
Time: Two-hour blocks from 3 to 11 pm
