The Little Mekong Night Market is inspired by the famous night markets held throughout Asia– with a Minnesota local twist.
A visit to the night market is an unforgettable experience of new sights, sounds and flavors. If you have been to night markets in Asia, you know these open air street markets provide an amazing carnival experience for all your senses. A trip to the night market is an adventure.
We will have food vendors, handicrafts, music, exhibits, cultural performances, and kids activities. Our mission is to support local small businesses and provide a venue for family fun and excitement.
What you need to know:
What’s new – A bigger Night Market, on the street! The Little Mekong Night Market is expanding onto the streets. We are located along Western Avenue at University Ave in St. Paul.
Getting here – We highly encourage visitors to arrive on the MetroTransit Green Line light rail to the Western Station. You can also take the 16 bus line, use a Nice Ride bicycle, bike to the event with your friends and family. If you live close to the market, walking is a great way to arrive. You can’t miss us.
Food – Variety will be everywhere throughout the market. With a wide array of flavors like Hmong, Lao, Thai, Korean, Filipino, Soul Food and Gourmet American foods.
Arts – You don’t have to eat your way through the market. Community art projects will be placed throughout and the center stage includes live performances from local artists and cultural groups. Performances throughout the event and the evening will emerge amongst the crowds.
We love kids! Families are most welcomed to join the festivities. Visit the Art Activities tent, dance with your child to live music, meet artists and fill the curiosity! There will be plenty of foods for your kids to expand their palates.
Community – Attendees reflect our community with a desire to connect with family, friends and neighbors over art, crafts and food. We are proud to bring together and celebrate a cross-section of our diverse population from across the Twin Cities.
