The Footscray Night Market is back this festive season to fulfil every food-lovers dream. Taking place every Friday night from December 3–24, the markets will showcase a diverse range of cuisines at the weekly event. Here, you can discover flavours from around the world, and check out live entertainment and music in the Footscray Railway Reserve gardens — and, with children's entertainment also on the lineup, it's easy for the whole family to have fun.

Each week, the markets will showcase a different theme to celebrate Melbourne's multicultural landscape. The first week will kick off with delicious African cuisine. Enjoy rich flavours, then watch complimentary performances from African artists from the Melbourne International Jazz Festival.

Then, on Friday, December 10, Footscray will celebrate the diverse flavours of Asia — complete with Bollywood beats and lion dances. The next week, on Friday, December 17, the markets will return home with an Australian showcase of Indigenous food offerings, plus a smoking ceremony.

On Christmas eve, the final event will embrace some festive cheer with a European-style market. Celebrate the festive season with carols and gift stalls — and Santa Claus himself is even rumoured to make a special guest appearance.

The Footscray Night Markets is free to attend, and offers the perfect spot to make memories with the whole family this summer. For more information, visit the website.
