Night Market: Fengjia

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.
