Red Lantern Festival

5 PM – 11 PM CDT

Part carnival, part bazaar, part party! The Red Lantern City Night Market is back in 2023 for its 3rd year in St. Louis, and 1st year at Saigon Cafe. This FREE vibrant cultural festival offers attendees the chance to come together and build relationships through food, drinks, art, and fun!

What can you expect from this night market? Traditional food and drinks from local restaurants (more than TWICE AS MANY food vendors as previous years!) A boutique shopping experience with local vendors selling everything from bags to jewelry to Japanese anime toys. Live cultural performances including traditional Lion Dancing. Plus interactive activities, music, and more!

The Red Lantern Festival benefits two wonderful organizations in STL: The Japanese American Society of St. Louis and St. Louis JACL (Japanese-American Citizens League). It has the potential to become an annual event at Saigon Cafe, providing an opportunity for attendees to establish a beloved tradition. So join us on Saturday, July 22 and immerse yourself in the culture of the Red Lantern Festival! Stay tuned for posts detailing the vendors and performers that will be taking part in this can't-miss cultural experience.
