Gastown Thursday Nights

On November 30th from 6pm to 7:30pm, the public is invited to Inform Interiors (50 Water Street) to experience an interactive store window display, inspired by the iconic New York City holiday storefronts at Saks Fifth Avenue. Visitors can enjoy by a free ballet performance from Arts Umbrella Dance Company’s Mixed Nuts production.

Then pop by every Thursday night from 4:00pm to 7:00pm to catch performances from the Los Dorados Mariachi Band (December 7th), the East Van Horns (December 14th), and the Nerdy Elves (December 21st).

“Kiss Me In Gastown” returns this year as well. This romantic gesture features mistletoe crafted by local florist, Floba, adorning multiple locations throughout the neighbourhood until January 6th. Visitors can explore the mistletoe installations at the Gateway of Gastown, the corner of Water/Cordova outside of Monaco Coffee, Maple Tree Square, the lamp in Le Magasin Alley, along with surprises at Arcade and other special spots waiting to be discovered.

Stay tuned for the list of retailers who will be open for late night shopping as well. Follow My Gastown on Facebook for more info.
