2019 ASIAN AMERICAN EXPO - YEAR OF THE PIG
Asian American Expo returns to Fairplex for the 2019 event calendar. Universally recognized as the largest Lunar New Year celebration in America, Asian American Expo 2019 is celebrating its 38th anniversary on Saturday, January 19th and Sunday, January 20th with a diverse lineup of new and returning exhibitors, sponsors, and activities.
Since 1982, the Asian American Expo was organized as a local community gathering with a purpose of sharing cultural heritage and to promote understanding amongst people of different cultural backgrounds through a celebration of the Lunar New Year. Chinese, Taiwanese, Cantonese, Japanese, Korean, Vietnamese, Filipino, Malaysian, Indonesian, Thai – all these Asian cultures are linked by their shared celebration of a new lunar calendar. This year’s event is guaranteed to be even bigger and more expansive than last year’s showing, featuring over 1000 vendors in seven large exhibition halls, 3 unique food pavilions, and eight non-stop performing stages.
Asian American Expo offers spectacular live traditional non-stop performances on eight stages throughout the show on both days. There are more than 48 different groups of entertainers and performers scheduled. Guests can experience Chinese Acrobatics, Japanese Taiko, Thai, Korean traditional dances, cheerleading, marching bands, drum craft, ballroom dancing, fashion runways and more. The Lion and Dragon dances are a must see for the Lunar New Year celebrations. Key activities to add to the expo bucket list are the annual Expo Eating Competition, Toyota Ride & Drive and Lucky Raffle Drawing.
