About Us

Night It Up! is an outdoor festival showcasing a mosaic of delicious Asian street foods complemented by local talents’ nightly performances, styled in the vein of night markets from Taiwan, Hong Kong and across Asia.

Organized by Power Unit Youth Organization, Night It Up! is unique in our mission to encourage youth development while maintaining our commitment towards the community. Through donating our profits to a beneficiary, we hope to set a precedent in youth to learn, grow, and share.


Each year, passionate youth of Power Unit Youth Organization vote on a charitable initiative to support throughout the year. All on-site proceeds go towards a selected beneficiary charity. To date, Night It Up! and Power Unit Youth Organization has contributed over $113,000 to various charitable initiatives in the GTA. This year, we have partnered with ALS Double Play. Stay tuned for beneficiary activations and how you can help.

Cook Up a Storm (决战食神)

Date: Friday, July 14th
Time: 9:00pm
Directed by: Raymond Yip

A Cantonese street cook (Nicholas Tse) and his chief rival, a French-trained Michelin-starred chef (Jung Yong-hwa), discover they have a lot in common as they prepare for a world-famous culinary competition. An international culinary competition becomes a battleground between rival cooks, one famous for his Cantonese street food and the other a Michelin-starred chef trained in France. But their rivalry takes an unexpected turn when they discover a common foe and combine their skills in a fusion of East and West.

McDull: Rise of the Rice Cooker (麥兜·飯寶奇兵)

Date: Saturday, July 15th
Time: 9:00pm
Directed by: Brian Tse

When an invading space monster destroys the superhero sent to repel him, a worldwide competition is launched to seek the best super robot to fight the monster. McDull is an average boy growing up in a fishing village and dreaming of being a famous inventor. With no mask, no red underwear and certainly no superpowers he takes on the challenge and starts tinkering with his mother's appliances. The result is Risopot, a decidedly low-tech, high powered robot that has evolved from a rice cooker. With the help of the jubilant villagers, McDull produces the robot and secures a birth in the finals. Risopot is a true product of community effort, rough around the edges and lacking sophistication but overall functional. Through a lot of tenacity and a fair dose of luck, McDull and Risopot win the competition but now the gravity of the mission to protect planet earth starts to sink in. Surely a pig’s head and a rice cooker cannot save the day?

Booth H4 - Stand-A-Bottle (Finger Foodies)
E3’s Finger Foodies will be running the popular Stand-a-Bottle game. It is a simple game where you attempt to use a fishing rod to make a beer bottle stand upright. It may look simple, but try it out for yourself to see! Compete with your friends to see who can get it to stand up the fastest! The game will be Canada themed - in commemoration of Canada’s 150th Birthday. See you there!
