C-ID Night Market

Night Out in the Neighborhood

As one of Seattle’s largest Night Market, the conception of C-ID Night Market was intended to provide locals and visitors a unique open-air market experience... at night. Taking after popular night market themes across Asia, the Chinatown-International District Night Market allows festival goers to feast on a variety of international delights; from food vendors dishing out a variety of street food, to local restaurants serving up the district’s popular staples.

What makes the C-ID Night Market unique is the outdoor international market featuring handmade local goods, fresh cut flowers, and Asian inspired items. As the sun sets over the historic Chinatown Gate, live bands and break-dancing groups perform throughout the evening as crowds dance the night away at the all-ages dance party. Adults can enjoy a few drinks in the beer garden, while streets are segmented off to allow for dozens of street vendors to offer a plethora of food, crafts, shopping, and entertainment choices.

C-ID Virtual Night Market

October 1st (6:00 - 7:00 p.m.)


As covid-19 continues to impact the way events are held, we are constantly exploring new and safe events for everyone to take part of.

Save the date for our C-ID Virtual Night Market, Thursday October 1st, in celebration of Mid-Autumn Festival (中秋節)! We’re planning lots of fun & interactive programming, demos, and activities for you to participate in, of course in a non-traditional format compared to our original Night Market.

We hope you'll tune in with us! Be sure to RSVP on our Facebook event page for more details to follow, such as the free virtual livestream link, as well as exciting promotions we'll be partnering with local neighborhood businesses. 

See you very soon!

In the meantime, please consider supporting CIDBIA and our work to provide public safety, sanitation, marketing, and advocacy to area businesses by donating now!

Due to the impacts of COVID-19, CIDBIA made the tough decision to cancel two of our festivals in 2020, which were Dragon Fest and the traditional C-ID Night Market. Losing an event means losing the opportunity to fundraise for critical programs that support businesses and residents in this vibrant neighborhood. Small business-es are left with uncertainty in facing continuously changing structures and policies, while doing their best to adapt.

Support is needed now, more than ever, and CIDBIA is committed to bringing more innovative programs and re-sources to help businesses in the neighborhood navigate these pressing moments.
