OUR MISSION

The mission of Panana is to produce meaningful, cultural, and entertaining events that bring people together. We want everyone at our events to celebrate time with friends and family through awesome food, outdoor shopping, live music, and fresh art.

WHAT IS A NIGHT MARKET?

Starting with the Chinese Tang Dynasty, the night market grew to great heights becoming some of the biggest social gatherings throughout Asia. Early Night Markets were primarily outdoor events, where different Asian cultures would bring together their very best dishes, stand out retail items and passed down traditions that they wanted to offer to the world.

Panana proudly carries on this tradition with our event and is honored to be among the few that has provided so many precious moments to families all around the world.

HISTORY OF PANANA

Panana started in 2019 by bringing Panana Night Market to the Inland Empire. For 4 events throughout the summer, Panana Night Market brought over 120,000 IE foodies together to create unforgettable summertime memories. In the fall, Panana went to Del Amo Fashion Center to bring the night market experience to the City of Torrance and over 50,000 attendees in September and October. In 2020, Panana brought back the historic Lunar Festival to downtown Riverside with 100,000 attendees over the weekend.
