A Big Night for Portland’s New International District
Oregon’s immigrant communities came out in force to celebrate Portland’s inaugural Jade International Night Market on August 23rd. Situated in the Fubonn Shopping Center, 6,000 elders, families and friends were all smiles as they enjoyed food, retail vendors and cultural performances. APANO staff and community partners worked with small businesses and local residents to envision a new economic engine for East Portland as part of the emerging Jade International District centered on SE 82nd and Division. The International Night Market is designed to support small businesses, foster a welcoming multicultural neighborhood for all communities, and increase community leadership.
One of the exciting aspects about the International Night Market is the story of how it emerged from multilingual organizing in Cantonese, Mandarin, Vietnamese, Russian, Spanish, English and more over the last year. Many have remarked that this may have been one of the first public markets or street fairs primarily envisioned and led by communities of color in Portland. As Oregon’s communities of color grow and become even more influential in shaping our economic and political future, we honor the contributions of those who have come before us and prepare to create a vibrant, inclusive community -- and we hope you will join us!
The International Night Market continues every Saturday from 6-10pm through September 13th, and is free to the public. Volunteers, especially bilingual volunteers are needed -- please contact email@example.com or call 971-340-4861.
Please consider taking public transit, or parking nearby and walking. There is limited parking at Fubonn, and we want to make the traveling experience to the event as pleasant as possible. There is available parking at the PCC Southeast campus which is only 2 blocks away from Fubonn.

What’s a Rich Text element?
The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.
Static and dynamic content editing
A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!
How to customize formatting for each rich text
Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
