Clear your midweek calendars and dust off your beanies, Melbourne — one of the bright sparks that helps us get through the city's frosty winter has made its way back onto the calendar. Queen Victoria Market's beloved Winter Night Market is heating up your hump day schedule from June 5–August 28.

From 5pm every Wednesday, QVM transforms into the kind of winter wonderland worth getting excited about, tempting you off the couch with a cosy program of street food, pop-up bars, live entertainment and artisan market stalls.

As always, it's serving up a tantalising assortment of street eats each week, with a huge array of food vendors repping dishes from all corners of the world. Get excited for the likes of That's Amore's cheese wheel pasta, The Black Sheep's spit-roasted lamb, pork and chicken platters, Lui Boss' Korean fried chicken and corndogs, Casa Nata's famed Portuguese tarts and stacks more, all perfectly paired with warming sips like mulled wine, butterbeer, spiced Milo and hot gin toddies.

As you're filling your belly with tasty winter fare, you'll be entertained with a rotation of live gigs, roving performers, Korean-style photo booths and open fires. Plus, the silent disco is also returning this year, because what better way to warm your cockles and work off a big serve of cacio e pepe than with a cheeky dance floor session?

If you're a longtime fan, you'll know market stalls are also a big part of the offering here. This year, expect as vast a lineup as ever, with over 60 vendors slinging everything from jewellery and art to vinyl records, vintage fashion and books.
