National Asian Heritage Festival to Rock DC for the 8th Year!

WASHINGTON, DC: In celebration of Asian Heritage Month, Asia Heritage Foundation once again brings Asian flair to the Nation’s Capital Main Street with its 8th annual National Asian Heritage Festival--Fiesta Asia. The Signature Celebration is a multicultural street fair on Saturday, May 18, 2013 from 10:00 AM to 7:00 PM along Pennsylvania Avenue NW between 3rd & 6th Streets in the District of Columbia. Fiesta Asia Street Fair is a Key Partner Event of Passport DC.

This year’s featured highlight is the new Fiesta Asia Emerging Stars Contest – a live talent search for ages 5 to 17. AsiaMoves, our annual ‘learn online, dance in the streets’ project is rocking a Bhangra Mania theme. Everyone can try their skills at the Fortune Cookie Writing Contest and vote for their favorite ‘word of wisdom’ online. Entertainment and activities are scheduled for nine consecutive hours featuring five stages, five zones, over eight hundred performers and seventy diverse groups from over twenty cultures locally, regionally and internationally.

Admission to Fiesta Asia Street Fair is FREE and open to the public. In addition to the May 18th street fair, DC metro area residents can explore and experience a variety of cultural activities including, Fiesta Asia @ Silver Spring on May 4th,  Fiesta Asia Planet Family @ Smithsonian’s National Zoo on May 12th & Fiesta Asia Film Fest @ West End Cinema on May 28th -30th.   For more information about participation as a partner, sponsor, exhibitor, volunteer, or about our month long activities, please visit
