Learn how Wichita is rich in Asian heritage at the annual Wichita Asian Festival. Every October, volunteers and coordinators of the Wichita Asian Association organize the event to include art, traditional clothing, performances and food. The long-running event has been a part of the community for nearly 40 years. The Wichita Asian Festival is the only time and place people can taste authentic food from as many as 15 Asian countries under one roof. The festival is free, but bring cash for food and merchandise booths. Don't miss more than a dozen performances highlighting different countries or the Miss Wichita Asian Festival pageant.
