TGIF with us this summer as we launch Fridays on Front, a brand new weekly night market experience in Downtown New West.
Historic Front Street has undergone a significant upgrade over the past few years. The City of New Westminster removed part of the parkade and reconstructed Front Street into a modern, pedestrian friendly mews, which officially opens on Friday, July 7th. Fridays on Front will run every Friday evening from 5:00-8:00pm for eight consecutive weeks (July 7 – August 25) on the 600-block of Front Street. The family friendly market will feature artisan vendors from the New West Farmers Market and New West Craft, live music from the New Westminster Arts Council, Front Street businesses and of course, our favourite Food Trucks form the Columbia StrEAT Food Truck Fest. The Downtown New West BIA has teamed up with Steel & Oak Brewing Co. to fully license Front Street. You’ll be able to grab a Steel & Oak beer or glass of wine from Vancouver’s first bar truck, the Vagabond Bar Truck, then stroll throughout the event, enjoying live music, unique shopping, a riverfront breeze and scenic views.
It gets even better, admission is FREE and our family friendly night markets are just mere steps away from two Skytrain stations. With new vendors and food trucks each week, reserve your Fridays this summer for an experience that is sure to be the talk of the town.
Front Street is home to some amazing businesses; Rain City Juicery, Antique Alley Movie Props, The Wine Factory, Old Crow Coffee Co., Westley's Military Surplus, Quay Pacific Property Management, Army & Navy, Columbia Integrated Health, Sugarrays Boxing and Hive City. Fridays on Front is your opportunity to rediscover these local gems.
