Asian Pacific Islander Heritage Month Celebration 2016
May has been designated Asian Pacific Islander Heritage Month. It is at this time that the Asian Pacific Directors Coalition takes over Seattle Center for their annual Asian Pacific Islander Heritage Month Celebration. If you’re staying with us at our North Seattle hotel early this May, don’t miss the opportunity to learn more of this fascinating and colorful region of the world.
Explore the art and culture of the Asian-Pacific Islands by experiencing numerous live performances, including dances, music, martial arts demonstrations, youth drill teams, local celebrity appearances, and more. There are also games and hands-on activities to engage visitors, as well as a marketplace vending a fascinating array of cultural goods. Little ones can participate in a number of children’s activities.
This year’s celebration is scheduled for Sunday, May 1st, from 11:45 am to 5:00 pm. It shall be held in the Seattle Center’s Armory. This is a free, family-friendly event. Check out the official event website to learn more about this year’s schedule and special guests.
