The Fifth Annual Nite n’ Day Festival is free to the public and takes place in Chinatown’s Central Plaza. It is convenient to the Chinatown stop on the Metro Gold Line, and several bus routes.

The Festival takes place in conjunction with Chinatown’s longest-running fundraiser, the Firecracker 5/10k Run/Walk/Kiddie Run/Bike Ride.
