The highly anticipated Footscray Night Market is back, transforming summer evenings into a celebration of diverse cultures, mouth-watering cuisines, and lively entertainment.

Immerse yourself in the beats, dance, and flavours that will transport you to a world of lively energy and joyful vibes. Interactive workshops for drumming and Afro-Latin dance are sure to delight the crowd this week.

The grand finale – our ‘Christmas Night’ on 15 December – will wrap up the Footscray Night Market with a festive spirit. Experience the magic of the season with Princess on Skates, a Christmas circus show, delightful treats and more.

Each market night will also feature roving performers, free face painting, and a bouncy castle for the little ones.
