Thursday 9 - Thursday 30 January 2020
4:30pm - 9:30pm
There’s no better way to spend a balmy summer’s night than by tucking into some mouth-watering street food, cool drink in hand, as a background of live music eases you into your weekend. Every Thursday in January let Melbourne’s newest night market set the stage for an event fit for the whole family.
Blending a mixture of food, culture, music and retail, Dandenong Market will lay out the welcome mat on every Thursday night from 9 January 2020 between 4:30pm and 9:30pm, keeping that summer vibe going all night long.
Food stalls will sizzle with cuisine certain to tantalise your tastebuds including southeast Asian street food, Caribbean soul food, Latin, Mediterranean and Halal. Share plates will be on offer so round up some friends and make a night of your catch-up.
Dandenong Night Market’s sponsor, Running Bull Sangria will also be in attendance supplying mouth-watering authentic Spanish paella and sangria.
Sit back and relax at one of our pop-up wine bars, while street theatre and live music sweep the Market, offering delight and entertainment for all. Ben Mitchell, Sarah Margot, Yazmindi, Zac Godwin and Jonny Maldonado will be performing tunes that will no doubt get everyone up on their feet.
Murrundindi the elder and head man (Ngurungaeta) of Wurundjeri tribe will perform a traditional Welcome to Country – he will even be demonstrating how to play the didgeridoo. Kids are welcome to come and give it a go!
Children of all ages can climb aboard Danny the Dandenong Market train, get shimmying to a silent disco, and find a fluid art rock hidden around the Market to keep for themselves.
Becky Bubble, Melbourne based bubble artist, will be creating some magic floating bubble creations to keep the entire family mesmerised. Snuff Puppets’ giant seagulls will create chaos among the Market, rounding out the four unforgettable nights of fun. The full entertainment schedule is on the Market’s website.
With free parking, free admission and plenty to see, do, taste and smell, the place everyone wants to be this summer is Dandenong’s Night Market.
