Vancouver Chinatown Night Market - May 17 - September 8, 2013

This summer, the Chinatown Night Market is bringing a heady mix of time-honoured tradition and new school flavour to the festivities on Keefer Street.

Live music, storytelling, and Mahjong; new vendors, more food, and some other stuff that wasn’t here last year like outdoor classic movie screenings and epic ping pong tournaments. Imported wares, both fanciful and functional, are still standard fare, as are such legendary snacks as the Potato Tornado. But by the magic of the moon (and the odd overhead flood light)–lo and behold!–something new might strike your fancy, something made fresh in Vancouver llike delicious Hainanese chicken, homemade pie and unique, hand-crafted treasures.

Best of all, it’s about spending those long, warm summer nights with your friends and family, shopping, eating, playing and getting nostalgic for the Chinatown of yore while creating new memories in a pretty special place.

Every weekend from May 17th to September 8th from 6pm – 11pm.
