2016 Keelung's Temple Night Market

Save the date: Saturday, May 14, 2016!Taiwan's night markets first appeared in rural areas as markets where traveling merchants could come together and sell goods to residents. Since there were few permanent shops in rural areas, these periodical markets quickly became a popular staple for food, entertainment, medicines, and other goods. How did UW Night Market start? The Taiwanese Student Association (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 outdoors to the HUB Lawn in 2005 before settling at its now-iconic Red Square location in 2011. Since 2001, we've brought this delicious and dynamic culture to the University of Washington and it has quickly become an annual Seattle tradition. This year is no different; we are pleased to welcome you to our 16th Annual UW Night Market! Whether you've been to Taiwan before, or have always been curious about Taiwanese culture, the UW Night Market offers a dazzling array of vendors, games, and entertainment that just might put Taiwan at the top of your next vacation destinations!
