Inspired by the bustling open-air night markets of East and Southeast Asia, DC is about to host its first annual REDEYE Night Market.
The event is slated to take place Saturday, Nov. 6, from 4 p.m. to 11 p.m. over four blocks of Pennsylvania Avenue from Third through Seventh NW.
The REDEYE is intended to serve as a celebration of Washington, DC’s rich AAPI community and to acknowledge the challenges and economic disenfranchisement that impacted small businesses across the nation in the past year.
This family-friendly market brings together 50 local vendors to showcase an array of food and beverage just as one might find deliciouness in a night market abroad.
Items will include Filipino pastries, Taiwanese shaved ice, bao and Korean fried chicken.
In addition to sampling signature dishes from celebrated local restaurants such as Incheon, Tiger Fork, Maketto, China Chilcano, Thip Khao and Baltimore’s Nihao, attendees will enjoy cultural and musical performances throughout the evening.
Admission is free with food and beverage for purchase. Learn more by visiting theredeye.nokingscollective.com.
