The streets of downtown Qualicum Beach will come alive Thursday evenings in July and August with the return of the Uptown Market.

Each Thursday evening the streets of downtown Qualicum Beach will be transformed into a great outdoor market featuring a variety of local artisans showcasing their wares. Along with these artful displays, many local merchants and restaurants will be staying open late, according to the Qualicum Beach Downtown Business Association, which is encouraging residents and visitors alike to come and experience the unique ambiance of shopping Qualicum Beach.  This year, the market has expanded farther up the street. More than 50 juried vendors will have everything from jewelry, soaps, photography, furniture, driftwood designs, yarns and wool, children’s wooden toys, baby items, furniture and a variety of edibles including farm fresh produce, baking and meats. Many of the Qualicum Beach Farmers Market Vendors will be part of the Uptown Market.

Qualicum Beach Bakery will be staying open late and will be barbequing their famous brats and hot dogs. This year, entertainment will be provided by the local band, Music to Live By (Bruce Feltham and Bob Kamerbeek).
