Once you’re so full you can’t move, don’t fret – there is plenty of live entertainment to keep you occupied and help all those noodles go down. Alongside the live music, the festival will feature lion dancers, and you’re bound to see plenty of cute pooches too – this is a pet-friendly festival!
“The Night Noodle Markets promises to be an event filled with tasty food, delicious drinks, and fantastic entertainment. Events like this also give people an overdue opportunity to come together with family and friends to relax, catch up, and reconnect, while celebrating their local foodie culture,” said Samantha Elliott, Head of Digital Sales and Marketing at Citi.
Conor Farrell, Head of Night Noodle Markets, says, “Having not been able to host since 2019, we are so excited to confirm the Brisbane Night Noodle Markets will be taking place in June this year. We are back with an amazing new home at the Brisbane City Botanic Gardens, a fantastic lineup of stallholders and pop-ups, and we’re helping make the experience easier through ordering with Mr Yum. It’s guaranteed to be a great night out of feasting under the stars for friends and families!”
