Why pay for airfare when you can travel to Asia for free at CelebrAsian! And we'll even provide you with an official passport to experience over a dozen Asian Villages where you can delight all five of your senses from the authentic asian food, educational activities, to live cultural entertainment! Each May the Iowa Asian Alliance unites the different Asian, Asian American and Pacific Islander communities in Iowa to make this festival come to life. This year's celebration over the Memorial weekend will honor the 40th anniversary of the resettlement of Southeast Asian Refugees. Since its inception, CelebrAsian has fast become one of the year’s most anticipated events. Don't miss out on the largest Asian American event in Iowa, showcasing cultural exhibits, history, food, performance artists, sports, martial arts and family-friendly activities.
