Night Market Cleveland

Our friends at NMC are hosting a Community Crowdfunding Campaign to continue building community, culture and creativity in Cleveland's neighborhoods. Their work supports AFT and our love for sharing AsiaTown's history, as well as it's diverse food & drink scenes!

Help support their continued success and of our vibrant communities by making a pledge, and sharing with friends

Over the past 3 years, we've had the privilege of hosting 11 events under starry skies, bringing together over 150 different musical and cultural performances, connecting over 300 local and regional businesses and celebrating community, culture and creativity with over 100,000 attendees from across our great city and beyond.

We've been proud to create an experience where your senses transport you to an enchanting place that's authentically Asian yet uniquely Cleveland.

Each year brings a new excitement to create an experience where all are welcomed, appreciated, and celebrated; an experience where everyone leaves with happy smiles and a curious mind as to what other treasures can be found hidden in the small communities of Cleveland, such as Asiatown.

NMC has invested heavily in this diverse community and hopes to continue to inspire growth, partnership, and revitalization long into the future!

Last season we were met with several challenges. Poor weather and high winds may have damaged our equipment and infrastructure but it didn't dampen the spark that has kept NMC alive. Going into our 4th season, the event has grown far beyond everyone's wildest expectations, so we are turning to our friends, vendors, and neighbors to help us rebuild and achieve sustainability so we can continue to light up the night sky on Final Friday's!

Please consider joining the NMC family through supporting our community crowdfunding campaign! With proud support of our community partners, we’ve put together some amazing perks that showcase our commitment to Asiatown and Cleveland, as we will hopefully continue to do for years to come! 06/07/2018
