AsiaFest: Plano Asian American Heritage Festival

Asian Food, Fun and Music for the Entire Family

Celebrating its 14th anniversary, AsiaFest 2017 will showcase the rich cultures of Asia: Japan and Korea in the north; China, Taiwan, and the Philippines to the east; Vietnam and Malaysia in the south; and Bangladesh, India, and Nepal in the southeast. The numerous cultural demonstrations, performances, and vendors will provide a fun and engaging time for your entire family.

Asian Languages
Chinese, Japanese, Korean, and Indonesian languages are considered as four of the seven critical languages by the US government. Come and learn the characteristics of these languages and see if you and your kids have an aptitude for these fascinating Asian languages.
Asian Medicine
Asian medicine has been practiced in Asia for over three thousand years and it is still an integral part of health and healing. Chinese and Indian medicine practitioners will answer your questions about how alternative medicine works and demonstrate healing techniques such as acupressure, cupping, message techniques and more.
Music from Many Cultures
Experience the cultural songs and rhythms created by a variety of indigenous instruments. The music is often accompanied by graceful ethnic dances. Feel the hypnotic beat of the Japanese Taiko, the Korean Samulnori, and the Chinese drums that accompany the lion and dragon dances.
Fashion Show
The flowing robes, the traditional costumes, and the colorful saris worn during the performances turn AsiaFest into a veritable fashion parade.
Martial Arts
Be awed by the fitness, skill, and finesse of the martial arts demonstrations. Many look forward to these displays of discipline and power.
Cultural Booths and Fine Art
View and purchase unique items from various cultures, from jade and porcelain to artifacts and ethnic garments.
Food from Many Countries
Experience delicious Thai, Chinese, Indian, Japanese, and American food from our numerous vendors.
