What is it: One of the largest open-air night markets in North America, attracting over a million visitors every year
Why go: With rows upon rows of vendors, this sprawling market features over 600 food items like Malaysian roti, hot cheeto mozzarella sticks, and fresh lobster rolls. Each summer has a different theme, but every year features huge art installations, live music, carnival games, and different kinds of rides (virtual reality, anyone?). Hop off the skytrain at Bridgeport station, eat, play games, and wander back to the food and eat again.
Dates: Weekends from May to October
