Ottawa’s iconic Sparks Street will be the new home of the Capital’s biggest and most
popular Night Market - The Ottawa Asian Fest July 22nd to 24th. Finally returning this
summer after a long 2 year break, the Night Market features some of the most unique,
trendy and popular chefs and performers from across Ontario.
The little Night Market that grew over the years draws thousands of foodies,
photographers, families and even tourists traveling from as far as Montreal to partake in
a feast for the senses.
With an eclectic mix of modern architecture and historic landmarks, Sparks Street
provides a pedestrian friendly, outdoor oasis away from the noise of traffic. Combine
that with the distinctive culture, lively energy and mouth watering Asian cuisine that
Ottawa Asian Fest is famous for, this truly is a match made in heaven and will be the
talk of the town this July 22nd to 24th.
"Sparks Street is very pleased to host the 2022 Edition of the Asian Night Market this
summer. We can't think of a more perfect time to welcome the fantastic energy that this
dynamic event will bring to the street in July." Kevin McHale, Executive Director,
Sparks Street BIA.
The three day Festival is celebrated for capturing the spirit and vibrancy of the renowned
Night Markets in Asia. A common remark heard at the event or on social media
comments is that “it feels like you are being transported to Asia” or as many local Asian
Canadians have said, “it feels like home.”
With Parliament buildings as the backdrop for this event, Ottawa’s Sparks Street,
with its diverse blend of local shops, art and accessibility is the perfect new home for
Ottawa’s biggest Night Market.
"For years we have had the desire to bring the Asian Night Market to Sparks Street, so
naturally we are thrilled to partner with Sparks for our return in 2022. Sparks Street
provides an escape from the traffic bringing a more authentic Asian Night Market vibe
and feel by prioritizing pedestrian foot traffic. It is a perfect fit and location and we plan
on making this year's event one of our biggest ever.” - Simon Huang, Festival
Organizer, Ottawa Asian Fest.
