The Mississauga Mid-Summer Night Music & Food Festival happens this weekend July 29-30 at the Mississauga Chinese Centre. The event, organized by the Chinese Cuisine & Hospitality Association of Canada in partnership with the Mississauga Chinese Centre and the Mississauga Chinese Business Association, had its inaugural run last year as the Mid-Autumn Harvest Festival and Night Market.
This year, the event will feature over 80 food vendors, non-stop music created by both DJs and live performers, a summer night market comprised of Chinese, Korean, Vietnamese, Caribbean and Filipino dishes and more.
Both food vendors and performance will put on sale and display different Asian styles.
According to festival organizers, there will be “endless amounts” of music and food. They also say the festival will work to celebrate Canada’s multiculturalism and its Chinese, Vietnamese, Filipino and South Asian communities.
If you are a foodie or just simply love Chinese food, here is your chance to enjoy a traditional Szechuan cuisine, Toronto’s famous Morals Village Hot Pot, Taiwanese stinky tofu, Korean Fried Chicken, fresh juice, Italian specialties and many other great eats.
The festival will also feature chefs who will showcase traditional meat slicing skills and demonstrate the most efficient ways to peel oysters. Chefs will also show attendees how to create nine different types of hand-made ramen.
There will also be prizes, carnival games and travel rewards.
The festival will kick off on Saturday, July 29 at 12:00 p.m. and opening ceremonies will commence at 6:00 p.m. The event will wrap up on Sunday, running from 11:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m.
So here is something to look forward to this weekend if you don’t have any plans or if you do, try squeezing in a bit of time to take in this experience. -CINEWS
