About Asian American Day
The Asian American Day (AADay) was initiated by the Asian American Association of Boston in 2011. The Asian American Day was approved by both the city of Boston and the state of Massachusetts in September 2016 and is celebrated on the second Saturday of September every year. Today, AADay has become a celebration of Asian American cultures and traditions and serves as a great platform for exchanging of information between Asian American and regional ethnic groups.
This year, we are greeting the 8th Asian American Festival and the 3rd year of Asian American Day. Ethnic cuisines, music and dance, art exhibitions, the business showcase will be combined together for this wonderful gathering. We hope to share this great opportunity with more people and sincerely invite you to join us in celebrating this tremendous event.
The 8th Asian American Festival will be themed as [∞ Boundlessness], symbolizing endless possibilities and limitless boundaries. This year, we will strive to integrate diverse cultural dynamism, break the boundaries between races and culture, and bring people closer to each other. While inheriting transition, we embrace changes and innovations.
