Las Vegas, NV – (October 14, 2023) Since 2018, Asian Night Market was created by two local non-profits, the Asian Community Development Council (ACDC) and OCA Las Vegas to better serve local businesses, create a space of community inclusion & civic engagement, and display the rich tapestry of Asian and Pacific Islander culture for all the community to witness and enjoy.
The 4th annual Asian Night Market will take place Saturday, October 14, 2023 from 2pm to 11pm at the College of Southern Nevada, Charleston Campus, located at 6375 West Charleston Boulevard, Las Vegas, Nevada, 89146.
Attendees will have the opportunity to visit the Night Market during the daytime experience between 2pm-6pm hours or the nighttime experience between 7-11pm. Regardless of the session you choose, buy your general admission and VIP tickets (while supplies last) at https://asiannightmarketlv.com/. Both sessions will be jam-packed with the same, great local vendors and a variety of performances that cater to all ages and foster cultural dialogues.
The Asian Night Market remains the only one of its kind in the Las Vegas area. The annual event showcases local Asian and Pacific Islander restaurants and businesses, and features entertainment for everyone of all ages. The annual event naturally continues to expand with its commitment to inclusion and community representation. Last year, the community-led event featured over 45 vendors serving 10,000 attendees. This year’s event will showcase over 50 community-based vendors, a variety of cultural performances, a student-led carnival area and will deliver a fun, safe and family friendly experience for the entire community.
“The growth is massive since our first event, and the most exciting part is seeing the community meet together with their friends and family, and other members of the community to see what our community is really about,” said Vida Lin, President & Founder of ACDC. “There is always something new and exciting at our Asian Night Market. Please join us this year, if it’s your first, or fourth time!”
One-hundred percent of net proceeds from ticket sales supports and provides free resources and services for the Asian and Pacific Islander community, provided by the event’s co-sponsors, The Asian Community Development Council (ACDC) and OCA Las Vegas.
