is the unofficial theme behind a brand-new summertime event that debuted last year with the high hopes of drawing different groups together. The Night Market Cleveland enters its second season from 5-11pm Fri 6/24 along E. 21st between St. Clair Avenue and Superior Avenue. This summer soiree features 120 food, arts and crafts vendors along with musicians.
"It’s kind of a blend of a maker market, a food show, a farmer’s market, as well as a concert series. Basically, the idea was to take a community and kind of like throw it up on the board for all of Cleveland to experience. There’s a big art component because that area has a big set of artists. It’s also representing the Asian community as well, so it’s kind of a blend and a representation of that culture and the creative community that surround the event."—Night Market CLE event coordinator Brendan Trewella [coolcleveland.com]
