Each May thousands gather to San Francisco for the Asian Heritage Street Celebration! The event stresses the diversity of the Asian Pacific American community with representation from all ethnicities performing live on stage, and offering a huge selection of arts and crafts.
In two years, the celebration is quickly becoming the country's largest assemblage of Asian Americans. The Asian Heritage Street Celebration is the largest San Francisco All-Asian Event. The fair is supported by community groups representing over 225,000 members.
The location of the street fair rotates each year to showcase the different Asian enclaves in San Francisco. Our first celebration highlighted the Japanese community and took place in Japantown, last year we showcased the Chinese Community on Irving. St. and this year we will celebrate the Filipino community in the downtown South of Market Area. The 3rd annual Celebration is scheduled for May 19, 2007 on Howard St. between 5th and 7th Streets!
The Asian Heritage Street Celebration is organized by the AsianWeek Foundation in cooperation with over 51 organizations in the Asian American community. The AsianWeek Foundation is a non-profit 501(c)3 committed to developing the Voices of Asian America. All proceeds from the Celebration will be donated to local and national charities.
