Admission is free and families are welcome.
The night market also features the DisOrient Film Festival’s 2022 Audience Choice award-winning film, “Dealing With Dad” at the Art House (492 E. 13th Ave) on the evening of the night market, May 26 through June 1st.
“Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month provides an opportunity to celebrate the contributions and diversity of the AAPI in our community,” says Event Director David Tam. “It’s a time to share our heritage as integral to the fabric of the broader community, and we encourage people to bring their family and friends for a fun Friday evening of Asian cultural heritage.”
