Atlanta International Night Market: Over 52,000 gather for multi-cultural event celebrating diversity

Atlanta, GA, April 26, 2017: The phrase, ‘Taste The World!’ now has a new meaning for more than 52,000 metro Atlantans and Southeast area regional travelers. They all were treated to a fun-filled event entitled, ATLANTA INTERNATIONAL NIGHT MARKET (ATLNIGHTMARKET.ORG) this past weekend (April 21st – 23rd) for which a follow-up festival for November 3rd – 5th, 2017 is already in the works. People drove from seven neighboring states to attend this family-friendly 3-day event celebrating diversity, culture, cuisine, and community. Most guests visited on Friday and Saturday, as Sunday was mainly wet with heavy rains.

In the words of one attendee, “If I had to describe this night with one word, it would be ‘Magical’. There was such a spirit of unity, and this evening far exceeded my expectations. I’m so proud of this community for showing up, and making this a memorable night for everyone who attended.” – Alisha Cole

With a veritable variety of sights and sounds, tasty authentic cuisine from around the world, a kid-zone with multiple carnival rides, costumed characters and much more, an international artisan market, retail vendors, a veggie festival, musical, cultural and dance performances, street performers, this event had something for everyone to enjoy.

Special thanks to all of the event sponsors including Coca-Cola, UPS, Delta Airlines, Georgia Natural Gas, Emory University and so many others who took a leap of faith in supporting this first-time event and to the over 200 volunteers who worked tirelessly through every phase of this project from planning & promotion to working the event.

As a 501(c)3 non-profit, the AINM Foundation’s “Taste the World” message is one of celebrating diversity, inclusion, community & culture with the goal of opening the hearts and minds of participants to embrace the diversity of the human family. AINM believes that learning about other culture’s food, performances, games, and traditions is an important way that we can help bring about real positive change in our global community.
