Asian Culture Festival Comes to Newnan Sept 25

The Asian American Business Association (AABA) will be hosting the second-annual Asian Culture Festival September 25th during the traditional time of the Chinese Mid-Autumn (Moon) Festival. The event will be held at the Court Square in Newnan from 11:00am to 4:00pm and the opening ceremony will begin at 12:00 pm.

The festival features local vendor-booths, selling a variety of merchandise, food, and beverages; including concessions dedicated to promoting various aspects of Asian culture. Many local non-profit organizations will be in attendance, joined by various artists, dance and cultural performance groups, including live performances.

New to the festival this year, the Taipei Economics and Cultural Office (TECO) will be sponsoring a photo exhibition entitled “Taiwan Sublime”. The exhibit, opening on the day of the festival, showcases the work of four professional Taiwanese photographers, and is co-sponsored by the AABA and the Cultural Art Commission of Newnan City. The exhibit will be hosted at the Panoply Decorating Shop.

In an effort to increase awareness of the Far East culture, the Asian Culture Festival offers many opportunities for new business relationships and cultural exchange. We wish to invite the entire community, and those in the surrounding area to join with us, and help celebrate the Asian Culture Festival in downtown Newnan this year.
