Queen Victoria Market at the corner of Elizabeth and Victoria Streets, Melbourne, is set to showcase authentic Malaysian cuisine over two days. Saturday 21 April 2018 from 9am to 3pm and Sunday 22 April from 9am to 4pm are dates filled with cultural entertainment and activities at this free event at Queen Street Plaza for families and friends to immerse themselves in.
Why not try on a traditional Malay costume, or learn the traditional dance art of Peranakan? If you're more into Martial Arts, it's there for you to try your hand. Wander the food stalls for a variety of Malaysian food vendors like Kean Hawker Food, KL Bunga Raya, Roti Road and more. Why not get your chops around some bajang kueh - a Malaysian pancake, along with lychee infused drinks, soft shell crab and durian crepes to name a few. Soak up a jam-packed program of Malaysian music and dance, which includes performances by One Malaysia Dance, Lokomotive, Christina Chew, Jazz Group Apollo and SOULthentic.
Aside from live performances, there'll also be workshops, cooking demonstration, and a Food Eating Competition. Think you have the stomach for it? Stay in touch for updates via the QVM's Facebook page.
Another date to put in your diary is Sunday 29 April 2018 from 10am to 4pm. It's a birthday party for QVM, when it turns 140 years young with a Street Party. There'll be a jam-packed line up of comedy, music, dance, magic shows, stilt walkers, balloon artists, face painters, mime characters and more, not to mention a Main Stage featuring a variety of live performances. With countless giveaways throughout the day and specials from stallholders, be sure to attend this epic event as well! A pop-up Silent Disco and a Traders Got Talent Variety Show ensures that the partying never stops at QVM.
