Community Spotlight: CLE Asian Festival

On today’s episode of Community Spotlight, TV20 reporter Errol Porter sat down with Cleveland filmmaker and co-founder of the Cleveland Asian Festival, Johnny Wu.

Since first arriving to the streets of AsiaTown in 2010, the Cleveland Asian Festival has become a yearly hit, attracting hundreds of thousands of attendees in its now 10 year run.

The CAF is a hub for those who seek to immerse themselves in a weekend of Asian cuisine & culture. Vendors have been hand selected to ensure the most authentic and diverse selection for patrons.

While you’re enjoying your Asian cooking, you’ll have two stages to pick from to watch a host of nonstop performances, including: marital arts, dragon dances, and the popular Asian-Pop dance competition.

For the younger patrons, an arts and crafts tent will be available at no cost, while for the older patrons, free health screenings will be available at the health pavilion inside the Asian Plaza.

This year’s Cleveland Asian Festival will run May 18th to the 19th from 11AM to 7PM in the East 27th and Payne area. Free parking will be available at Cleveland State University, with a shuttle running from the lot to the festival.
