Chinatown Montreal Is Hosting A Massive Asian Night Market This Year

Save your money and prepare for a feast. The popular Asian Night Market is returning to Chinatown Montreal this year, an event organizer at Foodfest MTL confirmed to MTL Blog. Last year, one street in the neighbourhood closed off to welcome 30 street food vendors selling treats for between $3 and $8, drawing thousands of visitors. Admission to the event was free in 2019.

Details on the 2020 edition are few, but the event has grown in size every year, moving from the Quai de l'Horloge in the Old Port to Chinatown last year, when organizers claimed it was the largest market of its kind in the city.

In addition to a seemingly endless selection of food, the Night Market was the site of street performances and games for participants.

The event will once again mark the end of summer, arriving on August 21 and concluding on August 23, 2020, an organizer told MTL Blog on Monday.

See a video preview of the event from 2018 below.

There's no word yet on participating restaurants, but past vendors have included Zoe Dessert, Restaurant Dobe & Andy, Restaurant Impérial, Soleil De Saigon, and fried chicken stand Le Coq Frit.

Last year, the number of people who marked themselves as interested or going to the market on Facebook was a whopping 34,000.

The 2020 market is sure to once again be the event of the summer.

As temperatures rise, more details are sure to come.

Stay tuned for updates and get all the current info below.

This is just the latest in a string of events announcing their return this year.

The Japanese spring picnic will once again take place under apple blossoms in the Botanical Garden, a spokesperson for Espace pour la vie told MTL Blog.

There's also the not-to-be-missed Hochelaga Flower Market, which will take over the Place Simon-Valois in May.

2020 is shaping up to be pretty spectacular.
