Instead of flying 18 hours to travel to Asia, Hoosiers can experience the many dimensions of Asia in their own backyard. The 11th annual Asian Fest is set for Sunday, June 24, 2018, 12-5 PM, at the Indiana State Museum in downtown Indianapolis. ADMISSION IS FREE.

Each year, Asian Fest spotlights one Asian country, and this year, Burma/Myanmar will take center stage. Indiana has one of the largest Burmese immigrant populations in the U.S. This is an opportunity to learn about this fascinating country and our new neighbors in the Hoosier state.

· Entertaining cultural performances from China, India, Japan, Burma/Myanmar and more
· Cultural Discovery of Featured Country – BURMA / MYANMAR
