The Cumberland Chamber of Commerce is co-ordinating its annual Village Market Day on May 18 in downtown Cumberland on Dunsmuir Ave from 10 a.m. till 4 p.m.
Village Market Day has become a much-anticipated annual event.
Residents and visitors from across the Comox Valley (and beyond) come to Cumberland to explore the sights and sounds of this vibrant street festival. Kids activities, arts and culture, bikes and boards, store and pub specials, live music, food and drink and big community spirit are all part of the occasion.
If you are a vendor of handmade, homemade, fair trade or locally manufactured goods we’d like you to join us! Locally produced food products, plants, trees and seedlings are also welcome. Vending fees are $50.
Cumberland-based businesses and local community groups are also invited to be part of the action and spend the day reaching out to new customers, volunteers, members and supporters. Local businesses or community group fees are only $25.
Cumberland Chamber members pay only $15. Kids vending (their own products, please) is highly encouraged for a small $5 fee.
If you have a free participatory, family-friendly, fun art, craft or sport activity you’d like to bring to the streets of Cumberland that day drop an e-mail to email@example.com and you will be included in the program free of charge.
