Come to shop, stay to party!
Gastown Thursday Nights brings a revolving cast of art installations, in-store events, shopping and dining discounts to Vancouver’s most historic neighbourhood.
On the last Thursday night of each summer month (June 27, July 25, August 29), participating Gastown stores will be filled with a ton of fantastic and free surprises including a live art creation, pop-up tattoo artist, belly dancer, Thai dance class, kissing booth, DJ’s, musicians, beverages, food, and more.
Expect plenty of sales (from 12-40% off), and promotions at different stores and boutiques, with all #GTN shops offering extended hours for later night shopping, and extended happy hours and food discounts at many participating restaurants. And don’t forget it’s Negroni Week!
Speaking of deals, you can win a $300 gift card during Gastown Thursday Nights by snapping a selfie in front of Gassy Jack on the night and tagging it #GastownThursdayNights and #mygastown. Come on, it’s fun to be a tourist in your own town! Speaking of which, tourists and locals should both come prepared for sweet summer sounds, as there will be a different accoustic roaming band performing throughout the neighbourhood each night. June 27th will feature The Stardust Stringband.
