Promotion & Events

PCDC continued its well-oiled line-up of events celebrating and promoting the neighborhood. These events includes the Chinatown Night Market, the annual Asian Pacific American Heritage Month Festival in Franklin Square Park, and the Chinese New Year Festival. These promotions have united our small businesses and encouraged a community-based rather than individual mindset.

Chinatown Night Market

Chinatown Night Market is a smorgasboard of citywide and local food vendors and performers. This roving street fair celebrates the city and Chinatown’s ethnic restaurants and dynamic neighborhood.

Asian Pacific American Heritage Month Festival

The Asian Pacific American Heritage Month Festival takes place annually during Asian American month in May. The outdoor festival transforms the city’s historic Franklin Square park, and features entertainment icluding traditional Asian dances, local food vendors, a children’s fair and health fair, and an after-dusk film festival screening Asian American films.
