We are especially proud of the featured performance art that includes traditional Chinese, Korean, Taiwan, Vietnamese, Thai, Indian, Indonesia Japan and Philippine dance & Music. First time, Balinese Indonesia traditional dance will be performed. We also showcase various martial arts demonstrations, K-Pop and J-Pop performances, Kimono Show, Chinese acrobat & opera from Las Vegas & NY, a bonsai exhibition, a cosplay contest, Japanese tea ceremony, and Japanese drummers from Disney World. Many of our artists travel to Knoxville from different US cities and from various Asian countries to participate in the Festival. 1,250 seats will be available under the roof for the big stage performances.
The Asian Festival also includes a strong educational component. We recently implemented "Asian World," where visitors travel through various booths that are named for Asian cultural interactive activities and feature traditional foods and art for each one. Children/adults will receive a stamp in their Festival passport for each cultural booth visited. Children are encouraged to visit all cultural booths to learn about the diversity of cultural traditions.
As a new project, we will host a Business Seminar on Aug 23rd 1PM at Knox Chamber. We also host 1st Asian Film festival on Aug 24th 10AM - 4PM . These films are very educational.
