Seoul’s evening will come alive with the opening of Seoul Bamdokkaebi Night Market starting from March 30 to October 28. This year’s night market will open at Yeouido Hangang Park, Banpo Hangang Park, Dongdaemun Design Plaza (DDP), Cheonggyecheon Stream & Cheonggye Plaza, and Culture Tank.

Seoul Bamdokkaebi Night Market offers a wide variety of international cuisines, handmade products, and music performances, attracting crowds of people every weekend.

In contrast to the seasonal operation last year, Culture Tank will hold the night market every week to accommodate additional events. Night market at Cheonggye Plaza will remain to operate on a seasonal basis.

Seoul Bamdokkaebi Market flourishes with people during its peak time at around 7:00-8:00 p.m. As scheduled programs and events are subject to change and vary by location, visitors are advised to check the market’s official website before visiting.
