AARC throws a party
Wednesday, May 4, 2022 by Tai Moses
In honor of Asian Pacific American Heritage Month, the Parks and Recreation Department and the Asian American Resource Center are throwing a festival celebrating all things Asian and Pacific. The family-friendly CelebrASIA event features a diverse lineup of musical and dance performances, delectable food, hands-on cultural activities, and a chance to learn more about the next phase of the AARC expansion project. Asian Family Support Services of Austin, Austin Asian Community Health Initiative, Austin History Center, Austin Public Library, Dougherty Arts Center, George Washington Carver Museum, and Oakwood Cemetery will also be on hand to celebrate and inform the community about their various community initiatives. This is a mostly outdoor festival with a few indoor activities, and AARC asks community members “not to attend if you or your family have been exposed to Covid, have a recent positive Covid diagnosis, or have been ill.” RSVP on Facebook or Eventbrite. Saturday, May 14, 11 a.m.-3 p.m., Asian American Resource Center, 8401 Cameron Rd.
