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 have partnered with Rainbow Railroad. Since 2006, Rainbow Railroad has been able to help over 600 LGBTQ people experiencing government-sponsored persecution and violence find a path to safety. Rainbow Railroad receives no government funding, relying on the generosity of individuals and organizations like yours. Thank you for resonating with the work and wanting to help. Your efforts send a message of hope to those LGBTQ people still looking for help.
