Following the success of their 2020 summer open-air market, the Uptown Waterloo Business Improvement Area (BIA) is announcing a new night market.
Starting next week on July 15th through to mid-September, weather permitting, the Uptown Night Market will run on Thursdays from 7:00 pm until 10:00 pm in the Communitech Hub parking lot (Dupont Street and Albert Street).
“The BIA is once again partnering with local vendors and businesses in offering the community an alfresco opportunity to visit Uptown and shop local foods, retail items, artisans and more,” shares Tracy Van Kalsbeek, Executive Director of the Uptown Waterloo BIA. “We are exploring a night market to tie into the vibrancy happening on our 50 plus Uptown patios and with the closures of Princess Street and Dominion Lane.”
Based on consultations with Public Health, the BIA will be managing and monitoring the number of vendors and visitors and ensure proper signage and precautions. There will be controlled entrances and exits as well as directional signage for customer flow. Vendors have been provided with protocols and will be implementing safety measures as outlined by Public Health. Volunteers and staff will be onsite to provide assistance.
Parking for the night market can be found at the Dupont and Library lots. There are still a few spaces left for interested vendors. For more information about the Uptown Night Market click HERE.
