I am super excited about this event to say the least!! Several months ago I read about this festival and immediately put it on every last calendar in my possession. My fascination with Asian culture started when I was very young. One of the things on my bucket list is to travel there. However, until I get to that bucket list entry, I will get a chance to experience the Alabama Asian Culture & Food Festival right here in Birmingham. On April 11, 2015, The Zamora Shrine Temple in the Irondale community will host the annual cultural fest. People from all over will have the chance to experience Asian themed, music, arts & crafts and my favorite.... FOOD! This will be an educational event for the entire family!
I love this excerpt from the organization's mission statement:
"Encouraging interactions among different cultures through education and artistic and cultural programming will promote diversity, and international understanding and friendship."
This helps to promote the purpose of events such as this.
Aside from sampling the highly anticipated cuisine, I am looking forward to the performance by the Japanese Taiko Drumming troupe, Matsuriza.
There will be everything from an Asian sales bazaar, an Asian fashion show,
a geographical display sponsored by National Geographic and MORE!!!!
For your convenience, there will be an ATM on site.
Tickets for this annual event will be only $8.00 for adults over 18.
$5.00 for teens 13-17, military veterans & college students with ID.
Children 12 & under are FREE!!!!!!!
