2017 Asian Pacific Heritage Festival

2017 Asian Pacific Heritage Festival

In celebration of the Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month, the Asian American Alliance of Marin (AAAM) hosts the 27th annual Asian Pacific Heritage Festival on May 6. This free event will be held from 11 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Saturday at the Marin YMCA, 1500 Los Gamos Drive in San Rafael.

The event will include a Marin Chinese Cultural Association lion dance, martial arts, tai chi participation, Japanese tea ceremony, qi-gong participation, Korean and Taiko drumming  and more.  The event is brought to you by AAAM and is co-sponsored by Marin Chinese Cultural Association (MCCA), Dominican University of California, and Asian American Donor Program (AADP).

We want to especially thank our host, the Marin and Novato YMCA, for its generous support and hosting the event for the second consecutive year. We could not have done it without our local partner. 

Together, let's celebrate the culture, traditions, and history of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders in the United States.
