This annual street market and spring celebration is a fantastic venue for local merchants, artists, artisans, crafters and creators, community groups, home based businesses, musicians & performers of all sorts to share their wares, show off their goods or tell their stories!

Vendors of handmade, homemade, fair trade and family friendly goods, crafts, foods, books, plants and flowers, clothing, treats or toys are invited to join local shop keepers for a day long street market attended by residents and visitors from across the Comox Valley and beyond.

Live music and hands on art projects are all part of the fun! Community non profits receive a special rate to share their stories and projects. A special invitation is extended to artists, experimentors and community organizations to bring an Elevate vibe to the Village streets.
