Incident and Suspicious Activity Report

The Downtown Penticton Association regularly receives complaints from merchants regarding instances when they, or their customers, have felt unduly bothered and/or intimidated by others in our streets or alleyways. Incidents we hear about generally relate to issues pertaining:

  • Persistent panhandling
  • Public Drug/Alcohol Use
  • Intimidating or threatening behavior
  • Health issues

In order to help us gauge the severity and frequency of such instances, please fill out the appropriate forms whenever you experience, or hear from a customer that they have experienced this kind of situation. Reporting is the most crucial step in building a case against any aggressive behaviours. These forms are soon to be set up on our website as a fillable online form, which will be sent to the DPA office via email.
To get the forms back to us, you can:

  • Call us, and we will pick them up 250 493 8540
  • Scan and email
  • Drop at our office 212 Main St Unit #3 (after-hours slide under the door)

If you have any questions about this form, please call Lynn Allin at the DPA office. The data collected will be reviewed by the DPA then reported to the appropriate organization or city department.
Thank you for taking the time to work with us on this new reporting process.

NIGHT MARKET – June 2019

Summer 2019 Night Market Application

For July and August we are planning to host our first ever Downtown Community Night Market!!
This market will be each Thursday evening from 4 pm – 8 pm between July 11 – August 29: a total of 8 markets.

Where will the night market be located?

The Thursday night market will be on colourful and vibrant Front Street, between Main Street and Veterans Way.
There will also be a miniature food court on Backstreet Boulevard.

Placement of vendors

Vendors will be placed in quads down the center of Front Street to create maximum exposure for both vendors and downtown businesses alike.
Our vision is to create an exceptional shopping experience for all of those who attend.
There is limited space available – we can place up to 36 tents! Applications will be reviewed in the order they are received. Vendors must commit for the full 8 markets.

How to sign up as a vendor

Complete the Night Market application form and submit it for review (tent and food vendors both use the same application form). Once received, the market management team will follow up with you to discuss the status of your application and coordinate obtaining a payment if it is approved. Registration as a vendor is only complete when (1) we have confirmed your application is APPROVED and (2) your FULL payment is processed.
