Downtown Courtenay BIA accepting applications for Market Day vendors

The “Real 50th Annual” Downtown Courtenay Market Day returns after a two-year pandemic pause.

This beloved community event fills 5th Street, as well as Duncan and England Avenues from 4th to 6th streets, bringing a vibrant street fair to the heart of Courtenay.

Applications are now live on Downtown Courtenay’s website for artists, crafters, food trucks and other vendors. Applicants can book a spot for their wares and be part of the bustling downtown merchant district for the day.

Handmade goods, art and food are all welcome additions to the booths that line 5th street.

This is a well-attended community event that hosts long-term returning vendors and emerging artists, as well as featuring downtown merchants in their shops and streetside booths.

Several community partners are participating, giving a festival feeling to the day. Free family art activities, two music stages, roving entertainment, a classic car demonstration, bicycle lock-up, and more, will delight participants throughout the free, outdoor day-long event.

Event planners comply with all current and changing PHO COVID protocols.
