History of Night Market
TSA first introduced Night Market in spring 2001 – a small but successful showcase of Taiwanese culture held in the HUB Ballroom. Since then, the event has grown tremendously, moving outside to the HUB Lawn in 2005 before settling at its now-iconic Red Square location in 2011.
Our primary goal for Night Market is first and foremost to promote Taiwanese culture. The sudden appearance of a full-fledged market on Red Square in some ways mimics how night markets “pop up” in Taiwan. Its fleeting, once-a-year nature invites people to come check it out, but it’s the food, games, entertainment, and culture that make a lasting impact.
