Culture festival returning to the area

February 24, 2014 by  

The 24th annual Asian Culture Festival is returning to Homestead for two days next month. It was organized by the Thai-American Association of South Florida and the Miami Dade County Asian-American Advisory Board.

There will be plenty of activities for people of all ages at the festival. The Global Children’s Village will feature activities such as a puppet show, tile painting, and dance classes. Children are given a passport which must be stamped at every area they visit. At the end, they will receive a prize.

There will also be arts and crafts for sale, a marketplace, lots of Asian food, and dance and music performances. Among the performers confirmed for this year’s festival are the Vancouver Pars National Ballet, Fushu Daiko, and M.E.C.A Dance. Other activities will include a Japanese Ikebana class, fruit and vegetable carving demonstrations, a Sepak Takrau tournament, and various cultural exhibits like the Malaysia educational booth.

No doubt this two-day event will attract visitors from all over the area, including Hialeah. With that in mind, organizers may order marketing materials from area printing companies. This may include flyers that can be distributed quickly and inexpensively throughout the area.

The Asian Culture Festival will take place at Fruit and Spice Park in Homestead from March 1 to 2. Admission is $10 for adults and $5 for children aged 6 to 12. Visit the event’s official website for more details.
