Enjoy the sights, sounds and flavours of Europe
Melbourne's iconic Queen Victoria Market is about to get a big injection of European flavour and fun as Wednesday evenings are transformed into the ultimate European night market.

Starting from April 10, Wednesday nights will see the market transform into a bustling European-style street party for five weeks until 8 May.

In celebration of Melbourne's diverse European roots, the event will gather 20 food and 20 retail stalls celebrating the unique quirks, traditions, and cultures from across the Continent.

Visitors can not only indulge in traditional and modern European dishes–think German currywurst, Portuguese barbecue, Spanish paella, Belgium frites and Irish Guinness wings -but also get involved in cultural activities such as Polish and Ukrainian egg-dyeing for Easter.

The Brexit Bar will be the place to mingle, say for a post-work beer, wine or cocktail, and take a break from the European action. In a nod to all the glitter, lights and outrageous fun of Eurovision, night market-goers can immerse themselves in a different European region each week through a variety of musical performances live from the amphitheatre-style stage.

Expect Spanish flamenco dancing, Ukrainian Hopak dancing and much more. The 'Euro Zone' will celebrate weekly themes of Eastern Europe, the Mediterranean, Italy, Iberian Peninsula, and French provinces. A weekly silent disco led by très kitsch holiday tour guides will complete the night for those wishing to get into formation and transport themselves to a European getaway.

The Europa Night Market kicks off on 10 April and will be held every Wednesday evening until May 8 from 5:00pm until 10:00 pm.
