CINCINNATI — Organizers of Asian Food Fest have announced the vendors and performance schedule for the upcoming two-day event.

The festival will take place Saturday and Sunday along the new Court Street Plaza and Vine Street in the Central Business District. In total, the event will include two-dozen food vendors and a number of musical performers.

Now in its 10th year, the event aims to offer unique insight into the traditions of the various Asian cultures found in Greater Cincinnati. Countries represented include Cambodia, China, Hawaii, India, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Philippines, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam.

Vendor and performance information are outlined below.

"Throughout both days, there will be a variety of unique Asian cultural entertainment including traditional Filipino and Chinese dances and Japanese Taiko Drums. “While food is the heart of this event, celebration of Asian culture will be on full display,” said Cynthia Oxley, director of Asian Food Fest. “We’re excited to return for a 10th year with an exceptional lineup of food, drink, and entertainment that includes Korean American Star Justin Park and Filipino-American Singer Jules Aurora.”

Lam Dang, an Asian Food Fest board member, said food is a great vehicle for teaching cultural awareness because it brings people to the table. While they eat, they talk to one another and hopefully learn something in the process.

"Food has always been something to bring people together and connect people of all races and cultures. If you want to get to know someone, you invite them over and you cook them a delicious meal," he said. "For Asian Food Fest, we want everyone to come to our home and try our delicious food and get to know us (Asians) better."

Asian Food Fest is produced in partnership with the Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber and Asian American Cultural Association of Cincinnati (AACAC).
