Beaverton Night Market

2020 Virtual Markets

2020 Beaverton Virtual Night Market, Friday & Saturday, Aug 14 & 15, 7 pm, streaming on YouTube.

Due to the pandemic, this year’s events will be held in a virtual format. Join us for an interactive, live-streamed, cultural sharing experience with performances, workshops, demos, interviews, panels and more. The Virtual Market will offer a limited supply of craft kits for sale just prior to the market from some of the featured vendors so you can experience a piece of the market while you tune in from home with friends and family.

About

The Beaverton Night Market is a project of the city’s Diversity Advisory Board, which has a primary role in planning and hosting the market each year. The concept is an original action item from the “Economic Opportunity” section of the Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Plan and has since been adopted into the Beaverton Community Vision as well. The first Beaverton Night Market debuted in Sept 2015 as a part of the city’s Welcoming Week and later grew to two larger summer events, attracting around 14,000 people each year.

Purpose

The Beaverton Night Market exists to create a vibrant, intercultural, family-friendly space that is reminiscent of night markets internationally. The Market offers a culturally-relevant evening activity and gathering space with ethnic food and crafts for families of all backgrounds in Beaverton.

Goals

  1. Foster a space for cross-cultural exchange and interaction by community members.
  2. Create a space for emerging ethnic food/craft vendors to showcase their work and share their traditions.
  3. Promote economic opportunity for culturally-specific businesses in Beaverton.
  4. Offer a fun, family-friendly, cultural activity locally.
