Eugene, OR — Tons of Fun! is the theme of this year’s annual Oregon Asian Celebration. Delight all five senses through sights, sounds, and tastes uniquely Asian as you stroll through the cavernous Lane Events Center on February 18 and 19. The doors open both days at 10:00 a.m., followed by the roaring welcome of the Chinese Lion Dance and taiko drumming to usher in a day of good fortune for all attendees and to ward off evil spirits.

Admission is $6 for one day or $10 for a 2-day ticket; free for ages 12 & under. Students ages 13 and older (including college students) are free with a student admission ticket that can be picked up at any Oregon Community Credit Union branch when showing a valid student ID. Advance tickets can also be purchased at any Oregon Community Credit Union branch.

Non-stop cultural entertainment, dance, art and demonstrations will keep the entire family busy and engaged. Targeted children's activities include a passport that children get stamped at booths throughout the celebration. Completed passports are redeemed for prizes! Children are also invited to take part in creating masks, origami and more!  

A complete schedule of activities and performances will be available at the door or at AsianCelebration.org.

Net proceeds from the event go toward college scholarships and community grants administered by the Asian American Foundation of Oregon. 

The Asian Celebration is produced by the Eugene/Springfield Asian Council whose mission is to create opportunities that foster greater understanding of Asian and Asian American heritages by presenting special events and activities to promote friendship and harmonious relationships.
