This spring, Sydney's Night Noodle Markets will finally make its glorious return for six nights of tasty things on sticks, bowls of noodles, all the bao you can handle and oh-so-many extravagant desserts.

After a couple of disrupted years, the beloved food event will hit up Sydney from Tuesday, October 4–Sunday, October 9. And, this year, the festival is ditching its traditional home in Hyde Park for another expansive inner-city location: Prince Alfred Park.

If this sounds familiar, just in a different season, the Night Noodle Markets were originally set to return in March this year, but had to be postponed due to Sydney's wet weather at the time. Autumn's loss is spring's gain, with the markets now making a comeback when the weather gets warmer — to give Sydneysiders the opportunity to get out and fill their night with Asian street food, drinks and entertainment.

Like most major events, the last two years haven't been smooth sailing for the Night Noodle Markets. In 2020, it was forced online, offering special meals from local restaurants and selections from its usual vendors via home delivery. Last year, the markets were unable to run at all, but now it's finally time to get excited again.

Stay tuned for further details about vendors, aka who'll be slinging delicious dishes and drinks, and what they'll be serving.

The 2022 Sydney Night Noodle Markets will run from Tuesday October 4—Sunday, October 9 in Prince Alfred Park, Chalmers Street, Surry Hills. For more information, head to the event website.
