Ready for some late-night bites? A Filipino night market is coming to Toronto this summer and it promises to be a feast like no other.

The event will be a celebration of Filipino heritage and culture with not only dozens of delicious vendors but also art installations and live music.

The night market will run in late June, which is also Filipino Heritage Month, “a month-long celebration in Canada that coincides with the June 12 Anniversary of the Philippines’ 1898 Declaration of Independence from Spain,” the event’s description says.

“Nearly one million people of Filipino descent call Canada home. The Filipino-Canadian community is one of the fastest-growing communities in the country.”
