FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Cultures of Asia Line Up to Shine on the Cleveland Asian Festival Stages

(Cleveland, OH 4/19/2011) Have you ever watched a Martial Arts film and debated with a friend whether or not there were any stunt wires?  Have you ever been enamored by Asian Fashion or have been startled by their beautiful costumes?  Do you enjoy music with a good rhythm?  If you have answered “Yes” to any of those questions then the 2011 Cleveland Asian Festival is the place for you to be!  This event will be happening on May 21st and May 22nd at Asia Plaza located on the corner of East 30th Street and Payne Avenue.  The event will be from 11 AM to 7 PM on both days.

With representation from all over Asia, the Cleveland Asian Festival will deliver a wide variety of entertainment throughout the course of both days.  The Performances will start at 11 AM in the morning for both days.  At noon, there will be a “Welcome Ceremony.”  On Saturday, the Lion Dancers will bless the Festival and on Sunday the Dragon Dancers will do the same.

Celebrity Vietnamese comedian Dat Phan (winner of NBC’s “Last Comic Standing” Season 1) will be entertaining on Saturday May 21st at 1:30 PM and 4:30 PM.

With two outdoor stages this year, the Cleveland Asian Festival will feature talent from all over Asia.  There will be live Martial Arts (without stunt wires- we promise!) at the PNC Stage located in the Warwick parking lot.  At this stage, there will also be a Fashion Hour on both Saturday and Sunday where you will get to see lovely ladies in traditional Asian apparel.  Saturday will feature Indian Fashion and Sunday will feature Vietnamese fashion.  At the Cleveland Public Power Stage (CPP Stage) there will be Cultural Dances, Music, Guest Speakers and Comedy shows.  The CPP Stage is also where the Eggroll Eating Contest will be held on Saturday, and the Samosa Eating Contest will be held on Sunday.

Even if the colorful entertainment does not keep you glued at one of the two stages, there is still plenty to do at the Cleveland Asian Festival.  Lolly the Trolley will be giving a tour of AsiaTown.  Ariel International Center is one of the Trolley stops and they will be hosting performances as well.  A Health Pavilion with free health screenings will be located in the corridors of Asia Plaza.  There will be many food vendors to give you a unique palette of flavors from all across Asia.  For those of you who love shopping, the World Market will have plenty for you to browse and buy.  Do you have little ones?  There will be a Children’s Area with games, inflated playgrounds, and crafts to keep their curiosity engaged.  All in all, there is something for everyone at the 2011 Cleveland Asian Festival.
