Instead of flying 18 hours to travel to Asia, Hoosiers can experience the many dimensions of Asia in their own backyard. The 10th annual Asian Fest is Sunday, June 11, 2017, 12-5 pm, at the Indiana State Museum in downtown Indianapolis. This year, the festival’s spotlight is on Japan. Admission is free.

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the Asian population more than doubled in Indiana in the last decade, bringing with them a rich tapestry of cultural heritage. This is a chance to interact and learn about their cultures, and enjoy food, music and dance. More information at www.aaalliance.org/asian-fest
