The Asian Festival is a celebration of the Asian culture and the diversity of the Little Rock community. The Asian Festival was established to encourage friendship and reduce prejudice by coming together to learn about different cultures and ethnicities. One of the Commission’s goals through this annual event is to celebrate the global fabric of the City’s social diversity. This is accomplished through the enjoyment of a variety of local and international performers, cultural exhibits, traditional music and dance, food from around the world, art and literature. Of course, the children are not forgotten! A hula hoop contest, silent auction, and try your luck are just a few of the many games for kids to play and win prizes. Local businesses donate fabulous door prizes that are given every hour. The Asian Festival is held every year in late June. Visit our website for dates and schedules. We look forward to seeing you there.
