2014 Sunset Market at Victoria Quay

Posted on Updated on

Sunset Market at Victoria Quay is coming up close!

The Sunset Market is back this summer for a total of ten nights at the Victoria Quay alongside the boardwalk. The market continues to run on Wednesday nights between 6pm and 9pm starting on June 25th running until August 27th.

The Sunset Market at the Victoria Quay is a partnership between the ALBERNI VALLEY CHAMBER OF COMMERCE and HUPACASATH FIRST NATION. The market began in August 2013 running successfully for three nights.

The Sunset Market is collaborating with local businesses to achieve another successful year.  The Victoria Quay location is a most desirable venue as it has the ability to attract residents, visitors and people travelling through en-route to other destinations. The vendors vary from artisans, crafters, jewelers, non-profits and general retailers are set up along the boardwalk with the entertainment settled in front of the Welcoming Figures providing for wonderful views from all areas.  As the name implies all visitors to the event are bound to enjoy magical sun sets over the Somass River and during low tides the added value of wildlife, including bears, is quite possible for additional enjoyment.

This year we have secured more entertainment options and of course we’re planning for more vendors. The market through its 2013 debut was well received by the Port Alberni community with comments such as  “Thank you so much, Port Alberni needs a market like this” and “The Victoria Quay is the perfect place for this market”. As a participant, whether a vendor or community member, you could feel the community pride and excitement. The Chamber of Commerce and Hupacasath First Nation are pleased to offer this summer long event to all residents, visitors and travelers in Port Alberni. Our longer term plan is for continued growth and exposure thus providing our vendors with fantastic growth opportunities for years to come.
