Night Markets throughout Asia have a mystical quality, popping up over night where nothing exists by day. Night Market Cleveland follows this creative place making tradition and acts as a catalyst for entrepreneurs, artists, performers, and attendees to celebrate Cleveland’s diversity in the heart of Old Chinatown. Night Market Cleveland pops-up on Rockwell Ave. & E 21st St. on final Fridays, June through September, drawing more than 100 food and retail vendors, along with an evening full of entertainment and activities for all ages.
This year, to further catalyze the revitalization of the neighborhood, the Cleveland Foundation will be Night Market Cleveland’s first presenting sponsor. Through this partnership the momentum of the series will continue to light up the night for 2017 season.
“We have been a proud supporter of Night Market Cleveland since its inception,” said Michael Murphy, Chief Marketing Officer, Cleveland Foundation. “It has become a signature event in our city, drawing thousands of residents and visitors and showcasing the distinctive culture, community and creativity of the St. Clair Superior, Campus and AsiaTown districts. We look forward to celebrating another season of this summer favorite.”
In 2014, the Cleveland Foundation provided a $20,000 grant to St. Clair Superior Development Corporation to help launch the first Night Market. This presenting level support of NMCLE ’17 is a continuation of foundation’s neighborhood wide support, with more than $720,000 in grants over the past four decades going toward a range of neighborhood development activities, including art galleries, public safety programs, artist residencies, and community policing.
Experience life at night this coming Friday.
