‘Philadelphia’s Favorite Street Food Festival!’

Night Market Philadelphia is one of the city’s premier street food festivals. It has grown into more than just a few food festivals a year. Each Night Market Festival spotlights a different Philly neighborhood, showcasing excellent food from local restaurants and Philly’s finest food trucks.

These events also include live music, the vibrant arts, and culture scene. It’s basically become a food party that will take place four times a year. A chance to explore different neighborhoods, foods, music and people all at once.

The original Night Market took place in East Passyunk in 2010 and the idea was inspired by Asia’s lively outdoor markets. Since its inception, the Night Market festivals have attracted well over 100,000 attendees and 300 food vendors to neighborhoods across the city, including University City, Northern Liberties, Washington Avenue, Mt. Airy and Chinatown while attracting local and national attention to Philadelphia’s food scene.

All of this year’s Night Markets will be from 6 pm to 10 pm.
