Asian Fest 2019

June 23, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm


Experience the sights, sounds and tastes of Asia without leaving Indy.

Instead of flying 18 hours to travel to Asia, Hoosiers can experience the many dimensions of Asia in their own backyard. The 12th annual Asian Fest is Sunday, June 23rd, noon to 5pm at the Indiana State Museum in downtown Indianapolis. ADMISSION IS FREE.

Festival highlights include:
• Cultural Discovery and Displays of Featured Country – KOREA
• Entertaining cultural performances from Korea, China, India, Japan, and more
• Asian cuisine from local restaurants
• Children’s activities
• Asian communities booths
• Asian American Alliance’s Youth Leadership Awards presentation
