Hosted by the Coalition of Asian Pacific Americans (CAPA), the 38th Annual Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Celebration is the longest running and largest event celebrating Asian Pacific American heritage on the East Coast. Operating under the theme “Celebrating As One,” the festival brings together a Who’s Who of New York-area non-profits, including the Japanese American Association and the Japanese American Citizens League, to showcase the community’s cultural diversity.

In addition to the community outreach and support, there will be performances by Soh Daiko and Junko Fisher, among others, martial arts and dance demonstrations, and ethnic cuisine.
