The UW Night Market is an annual event held by the Taiwanese Student Association on the University of Washington Seattle campus, on Red Square. This year will be our 17th year holding it since its creation in 2001. The attendance numbers have risen every year, and we need your help to meet the accommodations we need to meet to make this the safest and most enjoyable Night Market for everyone!

What is Night Market?

Night markets (夜市) are a big part of Taiwanese culture! They're bright and vibrant street markets that open after dark and offer all sorts of things -- food, clothing, massages, games, and gadgets! People of all ages gather in night markets to play games and grab some delicious food. You haven't really experienced Taiwan until you've been to a night market!

The UW Night Market is our rendition of a Taiwanese night market, brought to life in Seattle! Because the Taiwanese Student Association is passionate about bringing Taiwanese culture to Seattle, we try to bring the most authentic night market experience as possible. Last year, we hit a record in food vendors, and also had entertainment and games going on throughout the evening. We're working to expand Night Market even further and sell various knick-knacks, as well as improve the condition of Night Market to make it more professional and enjoyable for everyone.

Why do we need your help?

Night Market is a huge event that grows incredibly fast. Last year, we had an attendance of 7,000 people, and we expect the crowd to grow. As the attendance grows, so does our need for accommodations. We need your help to expand Night Market so it's not as crowded, and more safe for everyone. With great events comes great responsibility -- and we are required by the school and by law that we follow certain regulations. For Night Market, that includes hiring security personnel, buying fire safety equipment, providing first aid stations for accidents, and more.
