Midnite Bazaar is a monthly event which was founded to share the creations of individuals planted within the walls of the widespread City of Los Angeles, California, in a nighttime "flea-style" market. The goal of The Bazaar is to promote local artists, businesses and community development, bringing together an army of like-minded individuals who are striving to get their voices heard and products seen. So many amazing talents are nested within this city, and The Midnite Bazaar will expose you to some of the most interesting and thought-provoking products, ideas and talents that we have had the joy of discovering. Our events will feature both established and up-and-coming artists, fashion designers, musicians, tattooists, photographers, street artists, distillers, mixologists, woodworkers, custom car-motorcycle culture, local groups/gatherings, magicians, performers, oddities and much more. Any product, concept or talent making our mind stop and process its place in the world will be found here. Everything and everyone being displayed by The Midnite Bazaar has been created, fabricated or is currently operated in sunny California. Welcome to the world of The Midnite Bazaar. We hope you find something new that suits your lifestyle. ​
