For eight glorious weeks, the city’s oldest market will be transformed at twilight into a magical night market, offering hawker-style food, pop-up stalls, entertainment and music in one big cultural feast.

Melbourne’s love affair with dining out and new experiences will be intensified when the charming South Melbourne Night Market returns this summer each Thursday night from 15 January – 5 March.

Now in its sixth year, set amidst the beautiful Victorian streetscape of Cecil and Coventry Streets in South Melbourne, the Night Market has become an annual staple on Melbourne’s events calendar.  The city’s north south divide is bridged as Melburnians from all over come to enjoy the festival atmosphere and ever-changing, eclectic offerings from stallholders.

For music and entertainment lovers, a stellar line-up of local acts will be sprawled across the space and roving performers will entertain people of all ages. The bands turning on the tunes this summer will include the blissful trio Whitaker, Melbourne musos Mighty Duke and the Lords, toe-tapping salsa band La Rumba, New Orleans Street Funk eight-piece group Funk Buddies, Melbourne subtle songstress Sarah Carnegie and many more.

For foodies, Melbourne’s tastiest stalls and trucks will take over Coventry Street to serve up culinary delights to satisfy every taste bud. Think city favourites like White Guy Cooks Thai, Chingon Taco Truck, Overdosa, Greek Street Food, The Snag Society, Happy Camper Pizza and Yogurddiction. Cecil Street’s most popular restaurants including Simply Spanish, Linx BBQ Yum Cha, Köy, Paco Y Lola and Claypots Evening Star will continue to bustle into the night offering al fresco dining.

For shoppers, creative hub SO:ME Space will welcome people in to chill out with a drink, catch their revolving line-up of DJs and check out the best emerging and established designers including Mr Simple, The SuperCool, Lost in Seasons, Kreel, Bakerlite, LO & Behold and Stone Glint & Bone, as well as alternating pop-up stores. Retail stalls, set up along the skirts of the Market, will offer an eclectic range of fashion, design and craft.

If music, food and shopping doesn’t catch the littlies imaginations, then Pirate Sherief and Fairy Petunia will. Just for the kids, these colourful characters will be roving around armed with bubbles, balloons, face painting, juggling and games.

For a full line-up of music, designers, food stalls, trucks and bars go to
