Sugar Philly, Yakitori Boy, Poi Dog Philly, Humpty's Dumplings, Nomad Pizza, Pbon's Fresh Phood and The Chilly Banana are a few of this year's participants.

The annual event, re-branded as "Yè Shì," which are traditional nighttime festivals in Asia, is hosted by the Philadelphia Chinatown Development Corporation. 

In past years, PCDC partnered with The Food Trust, modeling the event after the popular Night Market series.

The street festival will run 7-11 p.m. on 10th Street, between Arch and Vine streets, and Race Street, between 9th and 11th streets.
