Mark the dates: Aug 7th and Aug 21st the Nomad Market Summer series takes place on the west shore. An outdoor event that will attract the people of one of the fasted communities in BC. It has been a tough two years for local makers and this is the time to come out listen to some music and shop. We are still confirming location details the path to a new event is here.
Events are making a comeback :)
Nomad is hunting for event space and areas that can support a market or fashionable events. We hope to put on a few events this year and bring people together to smile, shop and offer visual experiences.
We wish we could say that we have a great year all planned out but the reality is that things have changed so much that a full pivot is needed. If a new variance does not shut us down in 2022 there will be plenty of demand to get outside, shop, and be entertained. I am looking forward to being part of the reopening of Victoria.
How Nomad participates in this reopening is yet to be seen but we have a talented group of artists, Musicians, and customers that love our events and markets. The website will be updated over the next few weeks.
It has been a long wait but BC is starting to re open and with that there is a chance for some new and exciting market events to gtet started. Nomad is on a venue search. Stay posted as we get ready to start something new for 2021 and beyond.
In February 2020 we hosted Fashion Splash just before Covid 19 shut the world down. Every event Nomad Markets puts on always has a socially responsible aspect, donating money and awareness to foundations like the Women's Transition House or Food banks at our Christmas Craft Fair. Since we are still in shut down and social gatherings and events are not going to happen this Christmas, I have come up with an idea to help out some kids in Mexico who could really use some baseball gloves.
This won't be a huge event, but it is important to a small town in Mexico that has a growing group of kids that want to play Baseball. They play with limited equipment, fields that are sometimes just dirt, they play for the love of the game, they play to have fun and they train for many hours to improve their game.
A few years ago a small group of snowbirds from Victoria noticed some kids playing on fields in Sayulita, Mexico that looked more like unpaved parking lots than the green grass we know as baseball fields. They started asking friends to donate some equipment to help the enthusiastic kids. This sparked a movement that attracted more kids to play and then a couple of coaches. Since Nomad was not able to Fill the Rail Car with food this year due to Covid shut downs, maybe we can gather over 100 baseball gloves to help more kids learn the game. Maybe, just maybe they can come to Victoria and play a game.
The Goal is to collect 100 or more used baseball gloves before the end of December. If you have some baseball gloves that have been out grown please donate. Here is how you can help.
No doubt, this is one of the most challenging years in history. All is not lost as it has given creative-minded individuals the time to catch up to the digital age. Some of us have found new passions, others are maximizing online order, and some are taking time for themselves. I have talked to a few artists that are having a tough time buying food. Unfortunately, I have two on the streets with their hand out, which broke my heart.
We all have stories that build us up to who we are. This year will be one to remember.
The Nomad Holiday Market is cancelled for 2020. It was just getting started, but it has a good fan base, and I am sure when it comes back, it will be bigger and better.
