With two signature festivals in Vancouver, ACSEA is the leading presenter of Asian arts and culture events in Canada. As a presenting partner during 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics Cultural Olympiad, ACSEA was involved in three of the top ten most popular events of Cultural Olympiad named by the Georgia Straight.
One of the events was LunarFest, a Lunar New Year celebration for all Asian communities and beyond. LunarFest has always had a great emphasis on visual arts with various lantern installations. Moreover, the Lunar New Year tradition is also celebrated with the popular Dumpling Fest in addition to all other crafts and games for all ages.
In Summer, ACSEA is also the organizer for the largest Mandarin/English speaking cultural event in Canada in TAIWANfest which attracts over 130,000 spectators to Downtown Vancouver during the Labour Day weekend. The award winning festival has thrilled fans with large concerts, street banquets, visual arts exhibitions and much more.
