The 2015 Asian Festival, one of the largest gatherings of Asian Americans in Dallas, will take place in the expanded footprint of Klyde Warren Park and Dallas Arts District.
One of the first events marking Asian-Pacific Heritage Month, the Asian Festival showcases over 30 countries. Created to appeal to a broad range of visitors to educate and celebrate the arts and cultures of Asia, this year’s event will feature performances ranging from traditional and contemporary dance, music, lion dances and more.
In addition to the main stage, booths will be set up along Flora Street in the Dallas Arts District and throughout Klyde Warren Park highlighting traditional and contemporary art-making techniques, as well as vendor booths, food trucks and the Crow Collection of Asian Art’s ever-popular “Passport to Asia for Kids.”
A second stage, located on the east lawn of Klyde Warren Park, will highlight wellness practices, with classes including Tai Chi, Yoga and Meditation running continually throughout the day and traditional Asian games such as sudoku, carrom and shuttlecock.
