Celebrate Alabama’s Asian cultures at the annual Asian Cultures and Food Festival. Today, the festival will take place at the Zamora Shrine Temple, which isn’t far from Riverside Parc. Guests of this popular annual festival can learn about Asian cultures through food and performances, and attendees can sample fare from a number of Asian countries, including Thailand, Japan, China, Malaysia, and India.
Some of the performances that are slated to occur throughout the day include a Japanese drumming ensemble and a Korean fan dance group. Beyond food and performances, a number of special displays will be on site, including an origami peace mobile and an exhibition featuring photographs of China during WWII. Admission, $8 for adults, is required for entry.
