Enlighten Night Noodle Markets

Enlighten is an annual celebration of culture and creativity that takes place in the ACT in late summer to early autumn. The Enlighten Night Noodle Market is a celebration of food and produce from around the region. In October 2015, the Minister for Health, Simon Corbell MLA, declared the Enlighten Night Noodle Market to be a regulated event under section 91 of the Food Act 2001. This means all food stalls operating at the Enlighten Night Noodle Market must be registered, have a Food Safety Supervisor and comply with ACT food safety laws.

Public Health Officers from ACT Health will attend the event to monitor food safety and hygiene, and to provide education and support to the volunteers operating these stalls.

For additional information about Declared Events, please contact the Health Protection Service on 6205 1700 or hps@act.gov.au
