Asian communities and vendors come together to promote diversity through food and culture during the fourth annual Asian Food Fest (AFF). The festival will feature food from countries such as Malaysia, Vietnam, Thailand, India and the Philippines. Sample-sized portions will range from $2-$6. Local craft and Asian beer will also be available.
Enjoy local bands and vocalists, cultural dances, Asian-inspired arts and crafts and family-friendly games.
Be sure to catch a fireworks display by Arthur Rozzi Pyrotechnics on Saturday night. Although the event is free to attend, donations are encouraged; proceeds will benefit future Asian cultural events and the nonprofit organization Thrivera, which gives young people a voice through visual storytelling.
4 p.m.-midnight Saturday; 1-9 p.m. Sunday. Free; donations encouraged. Freedom Way (between Elm and Rosa Parks streets), The Banks, asianfoodfest.org.
