Moonlight Night Market

Thursday, October 25th, 9:00 - 11:00pm on O'Neill Plaza

A collaboration between the VSA, SEASA, TCO, PSBC, Hellenic Society of Boston College, KSA, CASA, DABC, Brazilian Club, GLC, Hawai'i Club, OLAA, SASA, Irish Society, and Nights on the Heights.

Moonlight Night Market is an intercultural night carnival in O'Neill Plaza. Each organization will have a tent that showcases their unique cultural foods and also a fun cultural game that attendees can play and have the chance at winning prizes! This event will emulate traditional night markets, which are an extremely prevalent aspect of nightlife in many parts of Asia. Furthermore, it will also serve as a belated celebration of Mid-Autumn Moon Festival, an important holiday in Chinese culture as well as in many other Asian cultures. Thus, we will be giving all attendees a taste of mooncakes, an essential food to Chinese and Vietnamese culture that's also quite tasty!
