“Thanks for helping us host a successful event highlighting conservation opportunities in Howe Sound. You and your staff were incredibly thoughtful and helpful, which allowed us to focus on our presentation and discussion. We were lucky enough to have many more people show up than we expected, and you effortlessly made room and put out extra chairs without a hitch. I look forward to coming back to Gibsons Public Market for our next public event!” – Panos at David Suzuki Foundation, May 2019.

Our photos are exceptional! The staff are kind, attentive and keen to make every detail perfect for a flawless wedding. They truly went above and beyond in order to make everything run smoothly. Not only is the venue remarkable, but the in-house caterer and florist are equally as amazing! Having a venue that can provide catering and flowers makes everything easier.
