North America's Biggest Night Market Is In BC & It's Opening This Summer
500+ items to eat.
Every bite will be pure bliss. Summer wouldn't be complete without attending as many food festivals as possible with your friend. But out of all the events, the one that is a must-attend is the Richmond Night Market — North America's biggest night market.
Every year the festival is overflowing withyou have to try. Originally scheduled to run from Friday, May 8 to Monday, October 12, it was just announced the start date has been pushed back.
With so many things cancelled, we are thrilled we still get to attend the night market. Every year it is one of the highlights of our summer but we're expecting it to look a little different in 2020.
Right now, the plan is open in time for summer. The exact start date isn't confirmed, but they are looking to begin at the end of June. A statement from the market reads "we will continue to assess potential scenarios in accordance with government guidance."
In the past years, the event has attracted over 1 million visitors, so it will take some careful planning to ensure your health and safety.
This year marks the 20th anniversary of the festival, so we are expecting it to be incredible. There will be all the night time entertainment and glowing light we have grown to love.
One thing is for sure you'll want to go starving, as there will be over.
With so many options, you could go every day until it ends, and still not try all the delicious sweet and savoury offerings.
The confirmed list of vendors has yet to be announced, but last year there was a mouthwatering selection of.
Some of the crowd favourites included rainbow grilled cheese, churros served in mini pool floats, and strawberry mochi.
