    CAMPBELL RIVER’S EVENING STREET MARKET - UP NEXT WITH CR LIVE STREETS

    CAMPBELL RIVER'S EVENING STREET MARKET - UP NEXT WITH CR LIVE STREETS - JULY 2022

    Market stalls, local food, and live music featuring Doc Fingers.

    Shoppers Row will transform into a pedestrian boulevard and street market on Wednesday, July 27, 2022, showcasing incredible local artisans. Browse market stalls, enjoy dinner at a local food truck, and spend the evening listening to live music featuring the world-renowned Doc Fingers. The Doctor has treated crowds of parties from the snow peaks of British Columbia and the Swiss Alps to smoky jazz bars in Paris, France, from Hawaii to Kefalonia, Greece, and many places in between, and is sure to put on a great show!

    The fun begins at 5 p.m. and will run until 8 p.m. All ages are welcome and encouraged to attend this free, family-friendly event.

    “We kicked off CR Live Streets with Battle of the Brushes earlier this week, where Maria Jackson was voted the winner from an incredible lineup of local artists. Thank you to everyone who came out and voted,” says Robin Mitchell, recreation and culture manager. “Next is the Evening Street Market, packed with live music, food, local vendors and more! City events are an incredible opportunity to come together as a community to enjoy the summer and to celebrate our local artists, businesses, and each other.”
