Interacting with our community on all levels

The Taiwanese Cultural Society hosts various events of all sizes, from small, cozy movie nights to large-scale regional events such as the Stanford Night Market. With these events, we aim to help people better understand Taiwanese culture and Asian-American heritage.

Stanford Night Market


Every year, the Taiwanese Cultural Society hosts the Stanford Night Market — an evening of performances, open air food stalls, and games — for the Stanford community, visitors from the Bay Area, and beyond. Emulating the feeling and environment of Taiwanese night markets, the Stanford Night Market joins many multi-cultural groups in this joyful celebration of Taiwanese and Asian-American cultures.

Taste of Taiwan


Early each school year, The Taiwanese Cultural Society invites all Stanford students to experience Taiwanese food culture through items such as boba milk tea, youtiao, scallion pancakes, and more! Come get a Taste of Taiwan!

TCS x JSU Iron Chef Cook-Off


This year, we will be collaborating with the Japanese Student Union to host a cook-off! Teams will make their own dishes under a time limit, and onlookers will get to taste them.

Smaller events


Movie Screenings

The Taiwanese Cultural Society also hosts free movie screenings on Stanford's campus, showing Taiwanese and Taiwanese-interest films for the Stanford community to enjoy and learn about Taiwanese culture.

Study Breaks

As exams approach, The Taiwanese Cultural Society host study breaks for Stanford students to kick back, relax, and socialize over beloved Taiwanese snacks, tea, pineapple cakes, and more!



The Taiwanese Cultural Society works, interacts, and meets with other university-level Taiwanese student groups through the Intercollegiate Taiwanese American Students Association (ITASA). We join quarterly mixers with other ITASA schools, attend leadership and career focused workshops, and travel to the annual ITASA West Coast Conference as part of our effort to connect to people at schools beyond our own.
