Everyone in the Lower Mainland knows what an amazing attraction the Summer Night Market in Richmond (SNM) is; that’s why this Asian-style night bazaar attracts thousands nightly and is one of Vancouver’s most beloved summer traditions. But it may come as a surprise that the whole world is catching on to SNM’s greatness: the BBC recently rated it one of the Top 10 Night Markets in the World!

Whether you’ve been to the Summer Night Market a dozen times this summer or haven’t been at all (yet), this upcoming weekend is a must-visit. September 16 – 18 is the 2011 ‘Season Finale,’ and each night is packed with special events (along with the usual 300+ vendors), including discounts, prize giveaways and live performances.

The finale weekend kicks off Friday, September 16 with a special charity event to benefit the Canadian Diabetes Association: donate clothes, books and housewares—the goal is to fill a 3-tonne truck!—and enter to win prizes. The night also features discounts and live performances from Hawaiian Dance Group, A Start Studio Dance Group, and the UBC Singing Group.

On Saturday, September 17, the Market hosts its Closing Ceremonies and Awards Night, with live performances of belly dancing, Tae Kwan Tao, and ballroom dance.

But the best night to go is the ultimate: On Sunday, September 18, the Closing Night celebrations include prize giveaways of Korean Airlines tickets, Pepsi products, and tickets the Capilano Suspension Bridge, Vancouver Aquarium, and the Vancouver Maritime Museum. There will also lots of discounts and deals, break dance and hip-hop performances by Fresh Groove and the last competition for the Filipino PNT Singing Idol contest.
