Little Mekong

Little Mekong is a Cultural and Business District with some of the most unique shops and best restaurants in the Twin Cities. Visitors come to Little Mekong to experience the authentic flavors of Southeast Asia and a wide array of businesses and cultural attractions in one area. Our mission is to improve the area at University Avenue and Western as an attractive destination for visitors and residents; to support and promote businesses; to share cultural traditions and activities; and to create a living, breathing, colorful district for all to enjoy.

Annually, Little Mekong attracts thousands of festival attendees with the Little Mekong Night Market! The Little Mekong Night Market is the Twin Cities’ unique street market festival located in the heart of the Little Mekong District. Inspired by the night markets in Southeast Asia, the mission of our Night Market is to offer unique products, services, and arts & crafts for an exciting community experience. From cultural performances and engaging activities to enticing flavors of foods and art, there’s so much to do, see, and sample at the Night Market for everyone in the whole family.



The Night Market is made possible through the generous support of our sponsors.  Asian Economic Development Association (AEDA) cordially invites you to sponsor the 2021 Little Mekong Night Market.


The Night Market is usually located at the intersection of University and Western Avenues in St Paul, MN, right in the heart of the Little Mekong Business and Cultural District.  The Little Mekong Night Market is the only festival of its kind in Minnesota celebrating the cultural heritage of the state’s Pan Asian American community.  Asians represent the fastest-growing demographic and voter group in the state.  


The Night Market has grown to an audience of 30,000 in 2019, demonstrating its immense popularity and the demand for its unique foods, art and crafts, cultural performances, and family-friendly gathering events among the Asian American community. Sponsors of the event are provided a tremendous opportunity to elevate their visibility among festival-goers as well as millions in the wider Twin Cities through promotions campaigns.

We hope you will seize upon this tremendous opportunity to reach and engage Asian Americans from across the Twin Cities and those who travel from other areas of Minnesota and as far as Wisconsin to experience the Little Mekong Night Market.
