The public is invited to bring family and friends to the Kensico Dam Plaza for an afternoon of entertainment featuring experts in traditional Asian dance and song, masters of acrobatics, and the martial arts, including lion dancers. Professional artists share the stage with children’s dance troupes in beautiful traditional costumes. There will be plenty of activities for children such as face painting, calligraphy, Chinese paper cutting, Origami, and games.
One of the most popular of the ethnic cultural celebrations on Westchester County’s summer calendar, the Asian American Heritage Festival attracts as many as 6,000 residents each year. It is also a favorite showcase for small businesses and non-profits, featuring vendors selling Asian-themed cultural artifacts and handmade goods, agencies offering educational and health services and local chefs cooking up a wide array of Asian foods.
The Festival is organized by the OCA-Westchester & Hudson Valley Chapter, sponsored by TD Bank, the ArtsWestchester, and supported by the Westchester County Parks Department, the Chinese Schools and nonprofit organizations, Westchester corporations and local restaurants and businesses.
