    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.

    Beneficiary

    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 $143,000 to various charitable initiatives in the GTA.

    This year, we are honoured to partner up with ALS Double Play once again. The name ALS Double Play conveys the charity's mission to focus on two things, continue to raise awareness about amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and support research for a cure. This charity hosts various events to unite communities together to tell their stories and raise funds to step closer to their vision of making ALS history. All funds raised will be used towards the Christopher Chiu Fellowship for ALS research at the University of Toronto, one of Canada's largest and most internationally published ALS research labs.
