Get ready, festival fans. Next month, phenomenal street food festival Night Market Philadelphia returns for its fourth year with the first event of its 2014 season.

The event does an incredible job of showcasing our fair city’s diverse neighborhoods and brilliant food scene by partnering with local restaurants, food trucks, regional musicians, and dynamic artists — all in all, creating one heck of an awesome block party.

This year, Night Market returns with four dates — all on Thursday evenings — in four very different neighborhoods.

First up, the food truck bonanza hits the cobblestone streets of the historic district with Night Market Old City on Thursday, May 15.

With its plethora of historic attractions, excellent independent eateries and top-notch art galleries, not to mention its immediate proximity to Center City, the Old City edition of this street fair ought to be one of the biggest and best events yet.

Following the May Night Market in Old City, the season continues with Night Markets in West Oak Lane on June 19, on Lancaster Avenue on August 14 and back in Chinatown on October 2.

If the upcoming events are even half as well attended as last season, the Night Market will continue its run as an awesome, not-to-be-missed bash.

Check out all of this season’s dates below.
