The Chinese-American Friendship Association of North Carolina (CAFA), sponsored by the Town of Cary, is running the third annual Taste of China Food and Culture Festival. The festival will take place on Saturday, April 15th at the Old Library Site (310 S Academy St) in downtown Cary from 12 pm – 5 pm, and promises to be a feast for the senses.
The festival is a celebration of Chinese culture and heritage, and visitors will have the opportunity to experience a range of cultural activities and events throughout the day. Traditional performances and music will be showcased, as well as cooking demonstrations that highlight the diverse and sophisticated culinary traditions of China. Visitors will also have the chance to learn about the customs and traditions of China, and gain a deeper understanding of the country’s history, art, and cuisine.
There will be plenty of food for sale at the event. China’s culinary traditions are among the most diverse in the world, and the festival offers visitors the chance to taste and savor some of the most iconic and delicious dishes of China, such as Cantonese dim sum and spicy Sichuan cuisine.
CAFA believes that food is a powerful way to connect people and bridge cultures, and they hope that the Taste of China Food and Culture Festival will help to foster a deeper appreciation and understanding of China’s rich and diverse culture. Whether you are a seasoned traveler or simply curious about this fascinating country, the festival invites you to join them on this culinary and cultural journey and discover the beauty and complexity of China for yourself.
This is the third year that the Taste of China Food and Culture Festival will be held, and the previous events were a resounding success. Over 20,000 people attended each of the first two festivals, and this year’s event is expected to draw a similar crowd. Visitors from across central Carolina are expected to come, and the festival promises to be a highlight of the cultural calendar.
For those looking for something unique to do next Saturday, it is completely free to walk around the event (though you, of course, have to pay for any food you want to try). There is plenty of parking at the library parking deck, which is just a short walk away from the old library site.
