Family-friendly, fun, and FREE admission, and in 2018, we will be celebrating the Year of the Dog!

But we will be back in the park for our huge 10th year anniversary in 2019!

Objectives of the Asian Cultural Festival of San Diego:
1) Celebrate and unify the diversity of our Asian populations for Asian Heritage Month
2) Educate and share with non-Asians the arts and traditions of our ethnic populations to support and preserve cultural harmony, and,
3) Build inter-generational and intercultural bridges across all barriers.

Presented by the Azuna Kai and led by Silk Road Productions, the Asian Cultural Festival Committee is a diverse group of young, Asian Americans passionate about culture and community – and in creating experiences that bridge generations, ethnicities, and communities.

4th Annual D6 Night Market* – Saturday, May 19

 

Presented and hosted by the Alliance for Quality Education and the D6 Night Market Team, the Silk Road team is proud to be part of the team for the fourth year.  The 4th Annual D6 Night Market will be a FREE family-friendly public event and it will take place at the Mira Mesa Community Park on Saturday, May 19, 2018, from 4:00 pm – 10:00 pm.

More social event than shopping trip, a night market is a blend of sights, sounds, smells, and tastes. Night markets, which are a popular tradition throughout Asia and other parts of the world, are an open-air casual social gathering and fill a need for civic community. They are a chance to leisurely stroll, shop, and eat while enjoying the excitement and pleasure that comes from being part of a festive crowd.

D6 Night Market, named for San Diego’s City Council District 6 (“D6”), one of the most culturally diverse district in San Diego, will have all the elements of a successful night market including a mix of food and beverage stands, vendors, and entertainment.  And the fan favorite Laser Light Show will be making a come back in 2018!

This community event will take place in Mira Mesa at the Mira Mesa Community Park. Alliance for Quality Education and the D6 Night Market team will be welcoming to all of our past visitors and new friends coming for the first time!  More information is available at www.d6nightmarket.com!
