Enjoy street food from across the globe, roaring fires, specialty shopping, quirky entertainers, deliciously spiced mulled wine and free live music at the Queen Victoria Winter Night Market. Wander the Market sheds and delight in the smells, sounds and tastes of winter, then top off the feasting and shopping with a boogie at the silent disco!
Every Wednesday evening in July, Winter Night Market will transform into a winter wonderland for Christmas in July. For five weeks only, those yearning for cool Christmas fun reminiscent of the northern hemisphere can enjoy the best of Melbourne’s street food, drinks and entertainment with a distinctly festive flavour.
Enjoy a real snow machine under the Market’s historic sheds, as well as a mini forest of Christmas trees glistening with decorations at the Queen Street end of the Market. Spiced mulled wine, decadent chocolate Christmas puddings, free children’s art and craft, and the cheery sound of Christmas carollers are just some of the festive delights set to warm up Wednesday nights during Christmas in July.
An ugly sweater competition will also run each week sharing on-the-spot Winter Night Market vouchers for those rocking the most festive styles. On 24 July, visitors will be invited to participate in an Ugly Christmas Sweater Catwalk with the winner walking away with $50 Market vouchers and a bottle of bubbles courtesy of Mitchelton Wines.
