Asian Food Fest Moves to The Banks

A taste of a different culture is set to move to The Banks this year.

Look out Cincinnati – things just got a bit tastier. The Asian Food Fest, produced by the Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber in partnership with the Asian American Culture Association of Cincinnati, is moving to The Banks in Cincinnati May 11 – 12 for it’s free event. A record 40,000 people came out last year to savor the popular Asian cuisine that will now be located on Freedom Way between Elm and Walnut Street.

Celebrating it’s ninth year and growing, the Asian Food Fest is ecstatic about having more space for vendors, people and booths this year. Last year, they had 30 vendors and a variety of Asian delicacies. This year, they are expected to have more.

Thousands of people come out to celebrate the Asian culture, cuisine, drinks and entertainment. Now with the new Skystar Ferris Wheel, the festival is expected to draw in an even bigger crowd.

All proceeds benefit the 501(c)(3) non-profit Asian American Cultural Association of Cincinnati and future Asian cultural events in Greater Cincinnati. For more information about the Asian Food Fest, visit
