It's the year of the Monkey! Come join the Asian Festival
Jo Ann Andera, Director of Asian Festival, gives us insight on the culture and good food you can expect at this years Asian festival.
The Institute of Texan Cultures invites Texas and Texans to the Asian Festival. What began as a traditional family reunion for the Chinese New Year has expanded to include other Asian communities and participants, showcasing their unique culture and traditions. The family-friendly event features music, cultural performances, food, fashion, crafts and other products. Guests can enjoy authentic Asian-American food from 15 vendors, offering Japanese, Korean, Thai, Laotian, Philippine and other delectable cuisines. Guests can also enjoy traditional Asian dance and musical performances on three separate stages; multicultural demonstrations of cooking, henna painting and palm reading; and craft sales including clothing, artworks, dolls, silk items and other gifts.
