February 5th, 2022, we were proud and honored in hosting the first Asian Festival with a great success and draw nearly 20,000 attendees in a one day event. The City of Mesa, Valley Metro and Asian District partnered with us to unveil the Asian District signage. Thank you to all our sponsors, vendors, representatives and volunteers for their support and dedication to the event to fulfill our mission.
We will continue our mission to bring you outstanding heritage, culture and tradition in hosting the Asian Festival at the Riverview Park, Mesa, AZ on Friday & Saturday, May 5 & 6, 2023. The City of Mesa and Asian District collaborate with Asian Festival to celebrate the Asian Pacific Islander Heritage month. Mayors from the Cities of Mesa, Tempe, Chandler & Gilbert, Councilmembers, State Senates, Valley Metro Board Members, community & business Leaders, students and families are excited to attend. We are expecting more than 25,000 attendees for this special 2 day event.
The Asian Festival mission is to promote a peaceful world by increasing international awareness and cultural understanding. It is time to build community through businesses and family oriented activity. The Asian Festival is having our second annual event that we hope to expand to various other events supporting the Asian District throughout the year. Our focus is organizing diverse cultural festivals, workshops and events for the public to learn and experience another culture, meet international friends, improve their language ability, taste of Asian cuisine, arts & crafts, tea ceremony, cultural dance and promote the value of cultures and traditions.
Welcome and enjoy this wonderful event.
