Sydney’s Super-Popular Night Noodle Markets Are Finally Coming Back IRL

If you’ve missed slurping down noodle soups, tucking into steaming-hot dumplings, and sipping bubble tea in a leafy Sydney park, you’re not alone. It’s been a couple of years since we last had the much-loved Night Noodle Markets descend upon the city. That’s all changing, though, with the food-fuelled event finally making a comeback with its hawker-style food stalls, live entertainment, lion dancing, pop-up bars, and luminous installations for six epic nights.

After postponing in March due to all the rain and subsequent flooding, the Night Noodle Markets have finally announced a new date—and they're going down in spring.  

Presented by Citi, the Sydney Night Noodle Markets are coming back to delight Sydneysiders from Tuesday 4 October till Sunday 9 October. Plus, it’s got a new home in Prince Alfred Park, arguably making it more convenient than its former Hyde Park digs thanks to its proximity to Central Station. Oh, and it’s pet-friendly, which is a huge win (particularly for all of us who got adorable pups in the pandemic). 

The much-anticipated event will turn the inner-city park into a bustling, openair Asian street food festival—and this year is set to be the biggest one yet. Crowd-favourites like Flying Noodles, Wonderbao, and Twistto will be dishing up delicious street snacks—from fluffy AF bao to Korean-style twisted potato on sticks—with more vendors to be announced in the coming weeks. And, of course, it wouldn’t be the Night Noodle Markets without Gelato Messina serving up creative and incredibly Insta-worthy desserts.

Because we’ve come a long way with QR codes over the past couple of years (yes, there’s a silver lining), you can expect shorter queues at this year’s markets. Thanks to a partnership with Mr Yum, you’ll be able to place an order on your phone and get a text when it’s ready to pick up, which means more time sipping a spritz and checking out the live acts, and less time impatiently waiting.
