Little Mekong Give to The Max 2017

In 2017, our Night Market event brought 20,000 people to our district, that's right, 20,000 people!

As an initiative by the Asian Economic Development Association (AEDA), the Little Mekong Night Market launched four years ago as a means of leveraging arts and culture to highlight the district. The Night Market intentionally draws on local artist-led activities, arts & cultural performances, and food & merchandise micro entrepreneurs and district businesses to create an economic and promotional engine that bolsters and elevates the district and to highlight the strengths of the community.

We are extremely excited to continue this work moving into 2018 with the 5TH Anniversary Night Market. In addition we are excited to be launching our Artist-in-Residence pilot program as well as a handful of arts projects and culturally specific programming in the Little Mekong District.

Currently we are gearing up for our next big event the 2018 BOLD NORTH WINTER NIGHT MARKET, Little Mekong's first ever Winter Night Market. It will be a wonderful wintery event for individuals and families to come together as a community to celebrate Minnesota's bold winters with delicious cultured food, local winter art activities and performances.

Donate today!!!! If everyone who attended the 2017 Night Market donated one dollar, we would raise $20,000. That means more dollars staying in our local economy and more arts and cultural programming in the Little Mekong District.
