Night Market Cleveland is a summer event series premiering in Asiatown this June 26th and running the final Friday of each month until September. The event is styled after the traditional Asian night markets, but is designed to be authentically Asian, yet uniquely Cleveland. Night Market CLE connects people to the distinctive culture, community and creativity of the St Clair Superior, Campus and Asiatown districts to spark interest, animate a creative economy, and inspire further exploration.
We are featuring a blend of food, produce, retail, and entertainment to give people a different way to experience life at night. At NMC, event-goers will see specially commissioned mobile vendor carts, to keep with the style of the traditional night markets, as well as unique lighting and entertainment. We will also be providing tours of the neighborhood to share with you all of our favorite attractions!
The event is focused closely on the surrounding neighborhoods, so much so that vendor fees are waived for businesses in the Campus and St Clair Superior districts. To be more inclusive, and remove as many barriers to participation as possible, we are even creating “Restaurant Inspired” food kits for event goers, based on recipes from the restaurants who are unable to have a direct presence at the event. Come join us at this family/dog friendly event and experience life at night!
Night Market Cleveland is entirely grant funded by the Cleveland and Gund Foundation with additional funding through the Eaton Corporation. The Campus and St Clair Superior Development Corporations are partnering to bring this event to life.
