Most night markets in Asia last throughout the entire summer season. Since it stretches over a couple months, patrons can come back week after week to enjoy the street food and have some fun. What happens when you squish this all in one weekend? Well for one thing, a weekend is not enough!
NAAAP’s T&T Waterfront Night Market takes place from Friday July 19 – 21, just a week after the uptown night market, Night It Up! If you didn’t get a chance head to Markham the previous week, you can still experience the wonderful world of Asian night markets at T&T Waterfront Night Market (or maybe you just want to attend both).
Hours of Operation
Friday July 19: 6pm – midnight
Saturday July 20: 4pm – midnight
Sunday July 21: 4pm – 10pm
Reel Asian will be at the night market for all 3 days. Come visit us at our booth and spin the wheel to win some great prizes! This year we’ll be holding our outdoor film screenings again. So as soon as the sun goes down, grab your tasty treats and make sure you get a good seat!
