Lovers of street food should mark their calendars for Chinatown’s first-ever Night Market Yè Shì, a nighttime food festival inspired by The Food Trust’s popular events that bring top food trucks and entertainment to rotating neighborhoods every summer and fall.

This Thursday, October 8 from 7 to 11 p.m. more than 50 food trucks and Chinatown restaurants will serve up delicious eats on 10th Street from Arch to Vine streets and Race Street between 9th and 11th streets.

Favorite festival food trucks will fill Chinatown for this major food truck festival — look forward to eats from Mac Mart Truck, Surf & Turf Truck, Local 215, Foolish Waffles, Sweetbox Cupcakes, Ka’Chi, Nomad Pizza Company, Lil’ Pop Shop, the Cow and the Curd and many more mobile vendors.

Some popular Chinatown restaurants will be serving up specials in celebration of Night Market, too. Look for dishes from BonChon Chicken, Yakitori Boy, Vietnam Restaurant and Tango and more.

Beyond food, there will be alcoholic beverages available for purchase at Yakitori Boy, Tango and a Frecon’s Cidery booth — cheers!

The festival atmosphere will continue with performances by the Philadelphia Suns Lion Dance group, the Philly China Breezy Band, DJ Ronnie D, Southbound A Cappella and more and activities like calligraphy demonstrations and karaoke.
