  • A full day of artistic performances on our main stage, enjoyable for all ages with a program which celebrates many Asian cultures.
  • Games and interactive area for those wishing to learn origami, how to do a kick-flip on a skateboard, improve your yo-yo skills, and more.
  • Exhibits to learn about the special contributions of Americans of Asian descent, and the journey of history through places.
  • Live muralist, Henley, who wows us with his talent and art!

This is a free outdoor family event on Main Street located in Historic Old Town Fairfax City. Other than delicious Asian foods, alcoholic beverages are available for 21+ to enjoy all day as well. Join us in celebrating our community, support local businesses, and enjoy the summer fun!
