Twilight Food Fair



Twilight Food Fair (once known as the Noodle Market) has been operating since 1990. The event is held in Civic Centre Park, at 200 Miller St, North Sydney.

Featuring a range of international cuisines and entertainment each week, it's a firm favourite for both families and individuals looking to make the most of their balmy-summer evenings. With good food, relaxed dining and great entertainment at its heart, Twilight Food Fair attracts lots of people to Civic Park every Friday night.

The 2019/20 season will operate every Friday from 25 October 2019 to 6 March 2020. This will be a 18 date run, excluding 27 December and 3 January. Approved stallholders are expected to attend every week of the season.

In order to keep the season fresh and dynamic stallholders must apply with a regular weekly menu and a "dish of the month". Each month one of the menu items should be new. This is in addition to or in exchange for an item on the regular weekly menu. The regular weekly menu can be served for the full length of the season.

Every year the Twilight Food Fair receives a large amount of interest from stallholders and Council is seeking to increase the quality of food and entertainment provided to the community. New stallholders and stallholders involved in previous seasons are encouraged to apply however no guarantee is offered that a place is held for this or future years. Each year applications will be assessed on a clean slate.

Only 3x3m sized stalls are permitted at this event. Small mobile coffee/dessert carts (smaller than 3m x 3m will be considered).

Stallholder fee: $250 inc GST (paid weekly)
