The Asian Heritage Street Celebration at Sunday Streets is taking place on Sunday, May 6, 2018, from 11am-4pm! Streets in San Francisco’s Civic Center area will be closed to vehicle traffic to make room for a stage showcasing traditional and contemporary performances as well as many other activities, such as the Faces of Asia cultural procession featuring ethnic attire. The Asian Art Museum is also offering free admission.
This Year of the Dog marks the return of the Asian Heritage Street Celebration, which completed a twelve-year cycle, and took a hiatus in 2017. This year’s Asian heritage activities are presented by the Chinese Culture Center, whose mission is “elevating under-served communities and giving voice to equality through education and contemporary art.” CCC is partnering with Sunday Streets SF, which has been reclaiming car-congested streets for community health by transforming them into temporary car-free spaces for all to enjoy since 2008.
Join Sunday Streets SF, the Chinese Culture Center of SF, the Asian Art Museum, other community partners, and your neighbors for this fun and free community event celebrating Asian Pacific American culture and community on Sunday, May 6 from 11am-4pm in the Civic Center area.
Performers, artists, small businesses, nonprofits, sponsors, city agencies and community groups are invited to host activities, showcase their work, and provide information to the public.
