Start rubbing your hands together in anticipation for the much loved St Kilda Twilight Market. Opening Night for the 2018/2019 season is on Thursday 29 November 2018 from 5pm to 10pm at its usual venue, the O'Donnell Gardens in St Kilda, with Luna Park as its backdrop.

The season continues till February 2019 once a week, every Thursday from 5-10pm. Dates following the opening night are as follows.

Thurs 6, 13 & 20 December 2018 (skips 27 Dec)
Thurs 3, 10, 17 & 24 & 31 January 2019
Thurs 7 February 2019

If there's any market that brings the community flocking to bask amongst its wonderful vibe under the palm trees, it's this market. The magic continues once daylight has turned to dusk, with punters seemingly reluctant to leave the Moroccan bazaar feels. You'll find a range of interesting stalls that include artwork, vintage wear, craft, handmade fashion from regular and emerging designers, jewellery, exotic clothes, curiosities, produce and more.

There's also a food section with a healthy selection of food vans to choose from. You certainly won't go hungry and there's enough international variety to suit everyone's taste. If you're lucky, you'll be there in time for some entertainment that could be in the form of musicians or fire-eaters; you just never know. Sit back, enjoy being a part of a community that makes that patch of lawn their own, hanging back as if they're home.

It's a bonus that it's in the vicinity of the iconic Acland Street, for the good feels don't have to end when the market closes. You can party on and have a late night latte, ice-cream or nightcap on Acland St, or you can walk in the opposite direction toward the beach just a 10 min walk away and pop into the popular and casual Republica or the dressier newly refurbished Captain Baxter.

The Gardens was named after Edward O'Donnell, a St Kilda Councillor in 1888 who served for 44 years without interruption; serving as Mayor of St Kilda six times. He passed away the year after he was defeated in the council elections in 1932. The large fountain in sculptured sandstone in the Gardens was erected in memory of Cr. E. O'Donnell and unveiled by the Mayor (Cr. C.H. Nelson) in the presence of a large gathering.
