The annual Night Noodle Market brings you a great opportunity to experience the rich and diverse flavours of Asia covering the streets of Japan, China and Thailand. Stroll down to this event at Birrarung Marr this November to sense the taste of all incredible culinary delights that Asian region has to offer. It’s a 3 week event running from the 9th-26th November, the Noodle Markets is a real feast not just for the taste buds, but your ears, nose and eyes too. Take yourself on a tour to this bustling food market and join hands in celebrating Melbourne’s cultural diversity.
Originally, it was a part of the Good Food Month (it will now take place in June 2018) but now Night Noodle Market is a standalone event. The market displays more than 30 snack stalls filled with exotic flavours and spices along with some inspired cocktails and many live entertainment for locals and visitors of all ages and backgrounds. The ever popular Night Noodle Market dragon dancers will escalate your excitement to a whole new level as they illuminate the crowd in a sea of acrobatics, music, dance and lights. Make yourself comfortable in one of our partners’ fun seating areas and get close with our schedule of chef’s presentation and demonstrations. Dance the night away with live DJ’s music performances and make it memorable why the Night Noodle Markets are always a night to be pleased with.
