Gastown’s going gold with balloons lining the cobblestone streets to mark store entrances. Hosted by Gastown’s premier boutiques, the event celebrates the start of the biggest season of the year with music, treats, and special promotions.
Discover why Gastown was named one of the most stylish neighbourhoods in the world. Independent boutiques line the streets, bringing exclusive labels and local designers together to create a distinct shopping destination. Each season, the style savvy make their way to Gastown for the latest looks, finding an unmatched selection of inspired designs for men and women.
The Gastown Shop Hop is a unique social-shopping experience. For one night only, retailers will open their doors until 9pm to showcase the latest looks for stylish locals. Think eyewear, accessories, shoes and everything in-between, as well décor boutiques that have everything you need to ensure your home is as well dressed as you are. It’s a chance to mix, mingle and maybe reinvent your style.
You can choose your own adventure––stop by your favourite shops or follow the Shop Hop map found at participating retailers. Shop the in-store specials and receive dining vouchers to satisfy your appetite at the end of the evening in some of Gastown’s best restaurants.
Gather your friends and head to Gastown on October 16th for a night of fashion, design and dining with the city’s finest. Don’t forget to share your #GastownShopHop moment on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
