Footscray Night Market returns to Friday evenings this summer – head to Railway Reserve in Footscray for the first three Fridays in December to enjoy family-friendly fun, delicious cuisines from around the world, and entertainment and music.

Each week will host a different theme, starting with Curry and Spice night on 2 December. This market will showcase rich spice seasonings, a special program of Bollywood and Sri Lankan performances, and live music by Faisal Amlani and band. MasterChef 2021 finalist, Kishwar Chowdhury, will also be serving her show-stopping empanadas.

The second night market on 9 December is Herb and Chilli night. Come along and immerse yourself in sweet and spicy dishes while being entertained by traditional Chinese lion dancing, an exciting African drum and dance ensemble, along with Mauritian band Sonik Waves.

The final market is BBQ and Grill night on 16 December, where you will be spoilt with finger-licking foods and a stellar line up of live music including drumming and an incredible performance by Once Spirit Africa.

There will also be roving performers, free face painting and a bouncy castle for the little ones to enjoy at each market.
