The Cleveland Asian Festival has only been operating since 2010, but it seems like it’s been around much longer than that. The festival, which takes place all day today and tomorrow, is located in the heart of Cleveland’s AsiaTown (Payne Ave. between East 30th St. and 27th St.) and offers all sorts of vendors, food, live entertainment and activities.

Nearly two dozen Asian restaurants set up in the festival area, serving everything from Banh Mi to Bubble Tea. There are also two main stages that include demonstrations and competitions, including an egg roll eating competition.

Admission to the festival is free, but parking can be a little hairy. There’s free parking at Cleveland State’s magnet lots on East 24th St., but you’ll have to walk a few blocks (which, let's be honest, you probably need anyway). The event runs from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. each day.

We’re keeping you informed…
...and it’s what we love to do. From local politics and culture to national news that hits close to home, Scene Magazine has been keeping Cleveland informed for years.

It’s never been more important to support local news sources, especially as we all deal with the ramifications of the coronavirus pandemic. Almost everything Scene is about -- our stories, our events, our advertisers -- comes down to getting together. With events on hold, and no print distribution for the foreseeable future, every little bit helps.

A free press means accountability and a well-informed public, and we want to keep our unique and independent reporting available for many, many years to come.

If quality journalism is important to you, please consider a donation to Scene. Every reader contribution is valuable and so appreciated, and goes directly to support our coverage of critical issues and neighborhood culture. Thank you.
