The Taiwanese American Student Association (TASA) will host its sixth annual Night Market Friday, Nov. 3, from 6 to 9 p.m. in the Thwing Center Atrium. It will be an evening of food and various activities.
Taiwan is famous for its vibrant night markets, which are traditionally located at the entrances of temples and extend into nearby streets and alleyways. With Night Market: Fengjia, TASA aims to emulate the traditional night market environment of Taiwan. Get more information about Taiwanese night markets.
The event is open to all and entry is free, but attendees must purchase tickets for food and activities. These tickets also will be entered in a raffle.
Pre-sale tickets will provide access to the express ticket line on event day and faster access to food and games. They will be sold in Tinkham Veale University Center Nov. 1 and 2 at a price of $2 for five tickets or $5 for 14 tickets.
TASA also is offering group discounts for people and organizations that wish to purchase in bulk. They cost $35 for 100 tickets or $50 for 150 tickets.
At the door, tickets will be sold for $0.50 each or at presale pricing. Large group discounts will not be available at the door.
Additionally, TASA gave out discount coupons at Thwing Tuesday Oct. 10, which can be redeemed for $2 worth of food.
