Produced by 626 Night Market, OC Night Market features 200+ food, merchandise, crafts, arts, games, music, and entertainment attractions in an epic event that appeals to all ages.
Eats: There will be hundreds of food items from vendors ranging from traditional Asian street snacks like takoyaki octopus balls and grilled squid, fusion bites such as pho tacos and rainbow elote, and fantastic desserts like poop emoji-shaped churros and potted plant ice cream. Tip: come with a group and split up. Order from different vendors and then reconvene to share and maximize the variety of foods you can EAT! See the vendor lineup here.
Drinks: Sip a lemonade from a mason jar with flavored jellies, milk tea in a unicorn pool floatie, or icy fruit smoothies in a lightbulb. Beer is available for those 21+ with a valid ID. See the vendor lineup here.
Shops: Mosey on to our crafts vendors when you first enter the event through the Promenade. You’ll get to try on handmade jewelry, find the perfect Deadpool crochet doll as a gift or adopt a cute plant terrarium. Even more vendors await you outside so you will have plenty to visit! Tip: bring a backpack or bag to carry your items in. See the vendor lineup here.
Listen: Take a seat and hear some awesome performances from local artists on our Entertainment Stage! Past artists have included K-pop violinist Jun Sung Ahn and Youtube artist Joseph Vincent. Teams of 20-30 dancers compete for a cash prize in our annual Horizon Dance Competition. Come prepared to be entertained!
Watch: See some local artists live painting or competing in an art battle at our Art Walk! Chat with artists, bring a picture of your dog to get a specially commissioned piece, or pick up a new canvas for your place. Some favorites in the past included watercolor splash fan art by Geoff Pascual, your favorite Japanese animation characters in minion form by Kris Kehasukjaren and Asian American cultural icon Angry Little Girls by Lela Lee. Definitely the ones to watch in your local art scene! See the Art Walk lineup here.
Play: There’s plenty to do such as trying to impress your date by winning a gigantic plushie toy, showing off your glorious mug in photos and dancing the night away on our open dance floor. B-boys are more than welcome to come take over the floor and break out some moves to some beats by our DJ. We’ve also had cosplay events in the past, so be on the lookout for a chance to dress up as your favorite anime character.
