The 626 Night Market is back this summer, with plentiful food and vendors, and is slated to be the biggest one ever! The 626 Night Market started in 2012 and has been held every summer of each year and draws roughly 40,000 to 55,000 attendees. It was originally held in Santa Anita Park in Arcadia, but have now expanded to include ares of Downtown LA as well as Orange County.
The market is inspired by the many night markets of Asia, specifically, Taipei, Taiwan, and have grown to mimic the different food bazaars. Since its first opening, 626 has grown to accomodate more that 180 vendors, and states that this year, not only will there be food, but an art walk and science festival as well.
