Asian Night Market
Friday, May 26, 2023, 5:00 – 10:00 p.m.
Eugene Downtown Farmers Market Pavilion & Plaza 8th & Oak Sts.
Welcome to the Asian Night Market! Bring your family and friends for a delightful evening of Asian cultural performances, a wide selection of Asian foods, a marketplace of craft vendors, and more. With last year’s success of our first Asian Night Market on the Downtown East Park Block, we are excited to move to the new Farmers Market Pavilion & Plaza.
May is Asian American and Pacific Islander Month and a wonderful time to experience the rich cultural diversity and influence of Asian night markets as they exist throughout Asia, and now, right here in Eugene. So mark your calendar, and join us for a fun evening out in downtown Eugene!
An event schedule will be added soon, so please check back.
This event is made possible with a City of Eugene Cultural Services Downtown Program Grant and is produced by the Asian American Council of Oregon.
