Save the date for next year's festival!

Thank you to everyone who to contributed to this year's wildly successful festival. Now mark your calendars for May 19, 2018!

The first Asian Festival was organized under the leadership of Dr. Ki-Hyun Chun in 2000 at Marshall Park in uptown Charlotte. The purpose of the Festival was to unite all Asian communities in the Charlotte to celebrate the Asian-Pacific Heritage Month of May. Attendance in Festival continued to grow in the ensuing years, drawn by the colorful and diverse cultural presentations, food and retail selectioins. After a few years at the Wachovia Atrium, the Asian Festival moved to its current location at Ramsey Creek Park, and, together with the Dragon Boat Festival Race, continues to grow as the Carolinas' premier Asian cultural event.

The Asian Festival is a family-friendly festival that is designed to celebrate the traditions and unique Asian-Pacific cultures represented in the greater Charlotte region. The organizers hope that in addition to providing an opportunity for local Asians and Asian-Americans to celebrate their heritage that the festival will serve as a cultural bridge to the community at large.
