“The Night Market is a must-attend event for foodies and shoppers who are all about discovering new tastes, scents and treasures,” says DWBIA Chair Brian Yeomans. “But it’s also, on a smaller scale, a way to experience an intimate and vibrant street festival with enticing foods, unique goods and fabulous music.

“This way, attendees can shop and support small, local artisans and vendors while immersing themselves in talent that comes right from Windsor-Essex.

“What better way to enjoy the core?”
