Asian Food Fest 2013 @ The Banks, Downtown Cincinnati

Saturday May 18 4p-12am & Sunday May 19 1-9pm

Asian Food Fest is having another exciting tongue-tickling line up of Asian cuisines and desserts at The Banks in Downtown Cincinnati, located between Paul Brown Stadium and the Great American Ball Park. There's a wide variety of tastings from Asian cultures such as Vietnam, Thailand, Philippines, India, Indonesia, and many more. Come find out how each culture will represent their exotic flavorings and artistic creations. The event also features local craft and Asian beer, live entertainment, children games, and fireworks by Arthur Rozzi Pyrotechnics on Saturday night!

The Asian Food Fest was created to highlight the rich cultural diversity in Cincinnati by providing a showcase of various Asian restaurants, surrounding Asian-American communities, and local businesses. There will be no entrance fee, but donations will be encouraged. Vendors will be selling sample size portions from $2-$6. The Asian Food Fest will be the first weekend long event held at The Banks and the first festival of its kind in Downtown Cincinnati. All proceeds from this year's festival will be used to host future Asian cultural events and to help support the non-profit Thrivera, which helps under-privileged children empower themselves by telling their stories through modern technologies.  Like us on Facebook to get updates, follow us on twitter, or read our blog.
