Here is our 2017 Promo Trailer!
The Asian Pacific Cultural Festival has a new home, as it is now presented by the Asian Culture and Media Alliance (ACMA), a dynamic organization dedicated to promoting and showcasing Asian culture through various forms of media since 2013. Founded on the belief that representation matters, ACMA works tirelessly to amplify the voices and perspectives of the Asian community through film, television, music, and other art forms.
The Asian Cultural Festival of San Diego was created and produced by Silk Road Productions in 2010 – and now with it’s new home at ACMA, this event will continue to grow!
The event started in May 2010 at Liberty Station before historically closing Convoy Street for the first time in its 5th year. The festival then moved to the Mira Mesa Community Park in 2015. On September 30, 2023, we will be celebrating our 11th fantastic year of sharing and celebrating Asian and Pacific Islander cultures – back in the Mira Mesa Community Park!
This event has been recognized by the US Congress, the California State Assembly, the County of San Diego, and the City of San Diego as an official event in San Diego celebrating Asian Pacific American Heritage Month.
We have included many people of influence and community leaders as part of our event as Honorary Chairs, including Sally Wong-Avery, Mayor Kevin Faulconer, Dr. Lily Cheng, Tom Hom, Councilman Chris Cate, (former) County Supervisor Dave Roberts, Mitz Lee, San Diego Honorary Philippines Consul General, Audie deCastro, and County Supervisor Kristin Gaspar!
This event was created to share, celebrate, promote, educate, and unite the Asian and Pacific Islander communities in San Diego for Asian Pacific American Heritage Month. This event is open to all people of all backgrounds – and is fun, family-friendly, and FREE!
For the safety and comfort of our guests, the Asian Cultural Festival is a SMOKE-FREE and WEAPONS-FREE event.
