Asia Above a Highway

The 2015 Asian Festival is a delightfully broad title for an event crammed with activities representing the cultures of over 30 countries. It’s not like the Scottish Festival, which--despite its many, many merits—is pretty limited to kilts, organ meats, and log-throwing. Indeed, the Asian Festival is teeming with variety—it’s one of the largest gatherings of Asian Americans in Dallas, and it features food, music, art and performances from India, Japan, Korea, China, Thailand, and just about every other place you can think of in the Asia-Pacific region. Between 11 a.m. and 6 p.m. Saturday, you can make your way through the Dallas Arts District up to Klyde Warren Park, 2012 Woodall Rodgers Freeway, and experience food trucks, vendor booths, games, Tai Chi, yoga, meditation, dance performances, and even art-making activities at the Crow Collection of Asian Art, 2010 Flora. All events are free; visit
