D6 Night Market: Free, Family-Friendly, Fun, Festive!!!
More social event than shopping trip, a night market is a blend of sights, sounds, smells, and tastes. Night markets, which are a popular tradition throughout Asia and other parts of the world, are an open-air casual social gathering and fill a need for civic community. They are a chance to leisurely stroll, shop, and eat while enjoying the excitement and pleasure that comes from being part of a festive crowd.
The 2nd annual D6 Night Market held in Mira Mesa on May 21, 2016 was another huge success, far exceeding the most optimistic predictions, with more than 10,000 attendees.
Here is a highlight video from our second annual event in May 2016
The D6 Night Market is a FREE family-friendly public event and it will take place at the Mira Mesa Community Park on Saturday, May 20, 2017, from 4:00 pm – 10:00 pm. (The park is located on Mira Mesa Blvd. across from Mira Mesa High School (1 block east of the Mira Mesa Mall) at 8575 New Salem Street San Diego, CA 92126.
D6 Night Market, named for San Diego’s City Council District 6 (“D6”), perhaps the most culturally diverse district in San Diego, will have all the elements of a successful night market including a mix of food and beverage stands, vendors, and entertainment. In addition, we are excited that D6 Night Market will feature several new innovations:
• A “Village of Neighborhoods” where each D6 neighborhood can showcase their youth activities, opportunities for adult volunteerism, and places of worship. (The D6 neighborhoods are Clairemont, Kearny Mesa, MCAS Miramar, Mira Mesa, Rancho Peñasquitos-Park Village, and Sorrento Valley.)
• Special activities for seniors at the Mira Mesa Senior Center
• Special encouragement for small entrepreneurs and family-run businesses to participate
• Fun activities for the youth
• A food truck gathering
• A coffee/tea garden, a beer garden, and a wine garden
• And much more!
Please join us for this free, family-friendly, fun, festive event!
The D6 Night Market is presented and hosted by the Alliance for Quality Education and the D6 Night Market Team. It is supported by the City of San Diego and the County of San Diego.
