Starting on May 17, 2018, the Taylor Street Night Market returns for its summer 2018 season of events. Every Thursday at Gordon Biersch Brewing Company, we'll be bringing you eight awesome food trucks, super tasty Gordon Biersch beer on-tap, a shopping market featuring all local makers, music, games (even more than last year!) and most importantly, a fun relaxing place to hang out with friends and family.
We are so supremely thrilled to be bringing back the Taylor Street Night Market this year. It's a genuinely great weekly event bringing a very wonderful fun-in-the-evening vibe to San Jose's Japantown neighborhood. On the Monday of every week, we'll be posting the maker lineup and food truck lineup for the upcoming Thursday's event so be sure to check back here for updates.
