The theme for this year’s event is “Celebrate Resilience, Uplift Voices.” In a year that has been all but normal, this is an excellent chance to celebrate the achievements and heritage of Asian/Pacific Americans in SF and across the country.

Arts & Culture

This year’s festivities will include live music, children’s programs, a Lion Dance performance, and so much more. Although many Art & Cultural Events are in-person, you can also sign up for multiple virtual meet-ups and learning sessions. Multiple events provide an educational insight into Asian-American Civil Rights during the past and present.
