After 4 successful Night Markets in Chinatown, we’ve decided that a larger, more accessible space is needed to accommodate our event that gets bigger each year. Sparks Street helps solve many issues from previous Night Markets with lack of space, accessibility and parking. By moving to the pedestrian-friendly Sparks Street we now have more available parking, direct access to public transit, and most importantly more space for festival goers and vendors. Expect even more performances and food this year with the Asian Night Market on Sparks.
All vendors accept cash and some may other digital forms of payment. We recommend coming with cash.
