'Movies on the Field' brings local food trucks, merchants, more to Sun Devil Stadium

For one evening only on Oct. 16, ASU 365 Community Union and Hawker Street Market will join forces to present a unique night market experience alongside a special screening of Oscar-nominated film "Minari" on the field at Sun Devil Stadium. Grab a friend, bring a blanket and come hungry to this one-of-a-kind experience.

The party starts with Hawker Street Market on the southeast plaza of Sun Devil Stadium. Doors open at 5 p.m.

Attendees can feast on birria tacos or rainbow elotes from Twisted Munchies; milk tea or shaved ice from Drunken Tiger; Korean rice bowls from Bulgogi Truck; Brazilian fries and Asian fusion snacks from Chinoz Grill; lobster or shrimp fries from Tempura Takeover; or something sweet from Amanda Bakes.

The market will feature vintage Japanese streetwear from Tokyo Thrifts; K-pop merchandise from both KPOP Arizona and Euphoria Arizona; and local streetwear from Imagine Threads and Phoenix Streetwear. Attendees can also check out customized "kawaii" art from Pepperonccini; vintage jewelry and clothing from Mod + Co; Latina "kawaii" jewelry from Andria's Tienda; and local streetwear and toys from Supermrkt.

The movie starts on the big screen at 7 p.m., and the after-show kicks off with a live "dalgona" candy contest (like in the popular show "Squid Game") followed by a live talkback with local Korean filmmakers and special guests. The entire event will end at 10 p.m. 

Masks are strongly recommended for this event. Event entry is free, and registration is encouraged. Food, drink and goods are available for purchase. Guest parking is available in Lot 59. ASU's clear bag policy will be in effect at the stadium; however, blankets are allowed and encouraged. More details available online.
