Asia Fest is an annual celebration of “National Asian Pacific American Heritage Month” which has been held in downtown Tampa since 1982. Each year the event has been coordinated by the Asian Coalition of Florida (AACF).
The goal of Asia Fest is to share Asian culture with the public and promote the bond of friendship and better understanding between the East and the West.

Asia Fest presents a colorful, festive celebration that features cultural entertainment and Asian ethnic food representing Burma, Cambodia, China, India, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Laos, Malaysia, Mongolia, Nepal, Philippines, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Taiwan, Thailand, and Vietnam. Several key local Asian Pacific restaurants are on board as food vendors.
Asia Fest is held annually during the same day and time as the International Dragonboat Race. Attendance to the event is well over 10,000.
