626 Night Market Announces 2015 Season
ARCADIA, CA (Feb 25, 2015) — 626 Night Market, the original and largest Asian themed night market in the United States, returns for its 4th season this year to produce two events in Costa Mesa and three events in Arcadia. Event dates and information are as follows:
OC Night Market will commence the 2015 season at OC Fair and Event Center on the weekends of May 8–10 and June 5–7. Event hours are 4pm–12am on Fridays & Saturdays and 4pm–10pm on Sundays. Admission is $5 and parking is $7. Children 6 and under are free.
626 Night Market will follow with three flagship night market events at the historic Santa Anita Park in Arcadia on July 3–5, August 7–9, September 4–6. Event hours are 4pm–1am on Fridays and Saturdays and 4pm–11pm on Sundays. Admission is only $3 with free parking. Children 6 and under are free.
Each night market event will feature over 200 food, retail, crafts, arts, games, music, and entertainment attractions. Since its inception, 626 Night Market has been a platform for showcasing local food entrepreneurs, businesses, artists, musicians, dancers, and filmmakers. Due to overwhelming popularity, each event is now three days, increasing selling hours, vendor sales, and visitor access.
626 Night Market’s slogan for 2015 is Welcome to your night market. “626 Night Market events have always been about the community, whether it’s bringing more awareness to local businesses and organizations or rising creative talent in the arts and music,” says Alexander Siu, 626 Night Market’s marketing manager, “Attendees are encouraged to take part on any scale they’d like, from participating in contests to performing onstage to showcasing the newest food creation. Make your mark on the night market.” 626 Night Market will be continuing its series of special projects at each month’s event to be announced as the dates near; last year’s art battles, dance competition, fashion show, cosplay contest, and headlining performances from local YouTube superstars were huge draws among the attendees.
626 Night Market is now accepting vendor and performance artists applications. Low vendor rates start at just over $98 per day. Top vendors gross up to tens of thousands per event. Last year’s attendance averaged over 55,000-60,000 attendees per event.
