AAPI Multicultural Festival
On May 21, 2023, AAPA organized the second AAPI Multicultural Festival which took place at the Cupertino Civic Plaza. It exceeded all expectations with a turnout of more than 500 people. It was truly heartwarming to witness the diverse community coming together to celebrate and embrace the vibrant cultures of Vietnam, India, China, Korea, the Philippines, Hmong, and Japan. The presence of 7 cultural booths representing each country allowed attendees to immerse themselves in the rich heritage and traditions of Asia, fostering a sense of unity and appreciation.
One of the highlights of the festival was undoubtedly the wonderful performances that showcased the immense talent within our community. From traditional dances to mesmerizing music, each act captivated the audience and provided a glimpse into the beauty and diversity of our cultures.
The engaging games and activities organized throughout the festival added an element of fun and excitement, bringing people of all ages together. It was heartwarming to see the smiles on the faces of children and adults alike as they participated in cultural games, interactive workshops, and educational exhibits. These experiences not only entertained but also fostered cross-cultural understanding and appreciation among attendees.
