Building a cohesive community.

The district features safe, walkable areas rich with arts, entertainment, cultural establishments serving food and drink and gathering places that foster a sense of ethnic diversity. The Jade District is identified as a distinct regional cultural district using consistent signage, lighting, traffic calming, physical improvements and signature events focusing on our many different cultures.

Our Work in the District

Small Business Development

One of our major strategies to achieve our goal of community stability is supporting key small businesses in the neighborhood. As part of this work and through the community visioning done with volunteers from the area, we decided to hold the Jade International Night Market on an annual basis. Though we took a break early on in the COVID-19 pandemic, Jade International Night Market is returning this August! 

One of the main goals of the market is to give local businesses the opportunity to promote their businesses and generate revenue while creating a positive event that reflects the culture of the residents of the area. The event debuted in 2014 and was wildly successful, bringing approximately 20,000 people to the neighborhood to share in the culture and atmosphere of the neighborhood. In 2015, the event grew to include three times as many businesses and again brought residents together to share their culture and experience with their neighbors. We hope you’ll join us this summer for the market’s return!
