In 2010, we created Night Market to bring communities together to celebrate the joy of food. Over the years, it's become so much more: an opportunity for local entrepreneurs to grow their businesses, a catalyst for community engagement, a creator of jobs and economic growth.
On Thursday, October 3, we hosted the 36th and final Night Market. We've held events in 25 diverse neighborhoods, working with 45 community partners, organizations and city agencies. We've supported well over 600 local food entrepreneurs and hundreds of local artists, performers and arts organizations. We've brought nearly 700,000 attendees together, with an average of 20,000 people per event.
Night Market has been so much more than a food truck festival, and none of it would have been possible without you.
