Celebrate Asian Pacific American Cultures and Heritages

May 5 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

May is month of spring and the time celebrate Asian Pacific American cultures and heritages.

Chinese American Association of Newton (CAAN) is proud to announce that it is going to sponsor (once again) this year’s Asian Culture Festival along with the Newton Chinese Language School (NCLS) and other local Asian organizations such as New England Korean Language School.

Asian culture is rich and diverse. It traces back thousands of years and is one of the world’s oldest cultures. In order to introduce Asian culture to our community friends and neighbors, the Newton Asian Culture Festival features a different Asian cultural theme each year. The past three years we showcased traditional instruments and traditional costumes. This year the theme will be Asian traditional costumes and clothing. You will have a rare opportunity to dress up traditional clothes for a photo opportunity.

In addition, you and your family can also watch traditional Asian folk dance, listen to Asian folk songs and try some traditional Asian food. The festival will also feature many activities for children such as arts & crafts, face painting and games. Please bring your family and friends to join this family oriented cultural festival.

Please kindly respond to this invite by next week. We look forward to seeing many of you with your family and friends!

Cheers,
Newton Asian Pacific American Culture Celebration Festival Committee
