Up-to-Date News about the Inglewood Night Market

Welcome Back to the Inglewood Night Market! 

After months of anticipation, we couldn’t be happier to announce the return of Calgary’s Inglewood Night Market taking place this September 4,11,18 and 25th. We promise to deliver the same level of excitement as years in the past, with some extra safety measurements to ensure all shoppers, staff, and volunteers can have a fun and healthy experience.

Admission Tickets

This market has usually been a free event but this year we have added a $5 admission ticket which became the only way possible to run the market with the new COVID-19 health guidelines placed by Alberta Health and AGLC.

Support Your Local Community

By purchasing a ticket you will not only be supporting this market, but also supporting the local community as a whole that has been hit hard through the pandemic this year. To do our part to give back, we will be donating $1 from each ticket to Music Mile to help support our talented local entertainers and musicians that help make the Night Market an iconic event year after year! 

Wristbands

Each ticket will coincide with a coloured wristband according to the time slot chosen by the customer, and will be valid for 2 hours throughout the market. All coloured wristbands will be available for pickup at the market entrance and at the time slot that the customer has selected - each time will have a different coloured band. These wristbands are designed to limit the capacity to the market by creating a steady flow of shoppers to decrease lineups and overcrowding. 

Where And How to Purchase Wristbands

All Admission tickets must be purchased in advance to entering the market and will not be available at the door, but can be purchased easily on your phone. Find the link to purchase tickets here.

Health and Safety

Standard COVID-19 health assessment questions will be asked to each individual before entering the marketspace in order to create a safe and healthy event for everyone involved. Masks will also be encouraged but not mandatory, as this is an outdoor event. 

Location

The Market will be split up into two sites, both located in Inglewood and a block away from each other in two parking lots. The first one will be on the corner of 9th avenue at 11th street and the second on 9th avenue and 12th street. Your admission ticket will give you access to both sites. 

Time

The hours of the market have been extended to 3 pm to 11 pm each day in order to limit the market capacity without cutting into valuable shopping time. There will be 4 time slot options available to choose from.

Vendors

This year will only be an only shopping event, but will still include many of our favourite food trucks serving up market classics to munch on while you shop. Market goers can expect many of the same incredible local vendors and trunk show booths, only fewer and more spaced out than other years so this year’s market can be an exciting, unique, and safe experience for everyone. 

Purchase your #NightMarket20 tickets here and follow us on social media for vendor updates, news, and special announcements. We can’t wait to celebrate the summer with you!

COVID-19 Response UPDATE: Inglewood Night Market 

April 13 [ CALGARY, AB ] 

 

Dear Calgary, 

Through recent events surrounding the COVID-19 virus, we have been forced to consider the possibility of what the future for the 2020 Inglewood Night Market will be. Due to the instructions of The City of Calgary and the Public Health Agency of Canada’s mass gathering risk assessment protocol we have made the decision to reschedule the June Night Market to a new date in July 2020 (TBD). 

 

What does this mean? 

For market attendees: As of right now, nothing about the market will be any different. Our team and board are closely monitoring the situation and staying cautiously optimistic that the Night Market will be able to proceed as usual on the rescheduled dates. We will continue to post updates on our website and our social media channels. 

For Vendors + Entertainment: We will be in close contact with you to ensure the change of date is a quick and seamless process. Please keep an eye open for an email regarding the next steps on your end, along with any news and updates that we receive regarding this tragic situation in the meantime. 

We realize the hardships that are a result of this pandemic and we want you to know we are doing our very best to ensure that we are making decisions with our health, safety, and the overall well-being of our city in mind. We’re committed to being both responsive and responsible as we navigate these times and do our part to support the local businesses, artisans, and makers who rely on festivals and shows such as this one to survive. Please continue to share these posts, stay current with the latest updates, and support local whenever possible. We couldn’t do what we do without you and we can’t wait to see this fear lifted and our city thriving once again!

COVID-19 Response: Inglewood Night Market 

MARCH 14 [ CALGARY, AB ] 

Dear Calgary, 

Through recent events surrounding the COVID-19 virus, we have been forced to consider the possibility of what the future for the 2020 Inglewood Night Market will be. Currently, as it stands, Alberta is in a low-risk situation, but is taking extreme precautionary efforts to ensure the virus is contained and hopefully short-lived. 

Please see Alberta’s latest public health advisories here

Right now our team at Urban Production Group are closely monitoring the situation and staying cautiously optimistic that the Inglewood Night Market will be able to proceed as usual this summer. We have been in close communication with the City of Calgary and will be moving forward in the best possible manner to adhere to the Public Health Agency of Canada’s mass gathering risk assessment protocol. We will continue to plan the execution of this much-loved market, but will be making future decisions regarding how we will move forward once we have more information in the upcoming days.  

Thank you Calgary for always being our biggest fans! We would not be able to continue to host the Inglewood Night Market if it wasn’t for your unwavering love and loyalty that you have shown us throughout the years. This international pandemic has hit every city on a local level harder than anyone could have planned for. It’s our mission through our events to always find ways to strengthen and rally behind local independent businesses, makers, and artisans – and that doesn’t stop now. Our local community needs us more than ever and any support you can offer truly makes a world of difference. Let’s gather together (metaphorically) and come out of this stronger than ever before!
