Please note: British Columbia is in Step 3 of its COVID-19 restart plan. Please adhere to COVID-19 health and safety measures, including physical distancing and frequent hand washing, and wearing a mask or face-covering in public indoor and retail spaces. If you are sick, please stay home.

We’ve been patiently waiting to hear what’s happening with the Richmond Night Market’s 2021 season, and we finally have an opening date from organizers.

The market will be open from Friday, July 23 to Monday, September 6.

Organizers say market-goers can expect “a smaller venue to start, with reduced capacity” and gradually more vendors as time goes on and health guidelines allow.

In pre-pandemic years the huge outdoor market — North America’s largest — typically ran from early May into October.

This event normally draws crowds from across the province who travel to check out the rows on rows of vibrant cuisine along with a diverse lineup of nightly performances on the 50-ft entertainment stage.

More details on the 2021 season are to come, stay tuned!
