Things to do

Coburg Night Market

Coburg Night Market get better every year and it's little wonder, considering that it was founded by the team behind the Queen Victoria Night Market in 2010.  Every Friday night from November 25 to December 16, Coburg Night Market will come alive with more than 85 food and artisan stalls, as well as live music and interactive entertainment. Melbourne’s diverse community is truly on show with the versatile dishes served up by the street food vendors. Run by Moreland City Council, over 30 food vendors including Cypriot Kitchen, Bun Cornidios and Perla Tacos, Indigenous Street Feast and Babaji’s Kitchen will be dishing up delicious street food at the weekly night market. There will be vegan, vegetarian and halal-friendly options available too.  Much like the food available, music and entertainment have also been sourced from Melbourne's global communities. Each Friday, the night market will present a different style and sound, from 1950s harmonies by local band Bobby and the Pins, Latin beats from Mariachi Los Romanticos, and roaming bands like Uptown Brown and The Whoopee Project, and Cyclo Illuminato.  The market has been scheduled before Christmas, giving shoppers a great chance to pick up some artisanal gifts.
