In 1993, the first Pacific Rim Street Fest was presented in Old Sacramento by the restauranteur, Frank Fat, and community groups. With his ever optimistic spirit, he was able to create a coalition of community leaders and succeed in seeing his dream of a street festival come to pass.
For sixteen years the festival has displayed the richness and diversity of many Pacific Rim cultures through cultural programs, entertainment, art and food. The event also enhances the community's knowledge of Asian/Pacific Island cultures in a fun and positive environment.

The Annual Pacific Rim Street Fest is scheduled for May 17, 2009 from 10:00am -5:00pm in Old Sacramento and Westfield Downtown Plaza. Having people of all ages and backgrounds at the event offers an excellent vehicle for leading businesses to showcase their support for the Asian American community. Each year we feature an aspect of Asian culture as the theme of the festival. For the year 2009, the theme is "Hats and Headdresses".

Ride RT buses to the Fest!
