Experience family, keiki, cultural and culinary celebration during the Taste of Chinatown Festival

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Head on down to the Taste of Chinatown Festival on Saturday, August 13th, for a cultural and culinary celebration in the heart of Chinatown.  Sample tastings from the many new area chefs and eateries, browse hand-crafted artisan wares, participate in keiki and cultural activities or just relax and enjoy cultural demonstrations and entertainment in a park setting.

Chefs from Artizen by MW, Downbeat Diner, Kan Zaman, Little Village, Pig and the Lady and Scratch Kitchen & Bakeshop will be on hand creating tasty small plates.   Be sure to save some room for handcrafted ice cream, custards, shave ice and popsicles.

The event will start with a lion blessing and entertainment will continue throughout the day.  Look for an ukulele ensemble in the morning, singer-songwriter Emi Hart playing around noon, cultural demonstrations, and an extra special lip sync battle in the afternoon!

Keiki activities and cultural demonstrations will kick off after the Lion blessing and include face painting, learning how to make Asian scrolls, and creating monkey masks to celebrate the year of the monkey.

The Taste of Chinatown Festival will take place at Smith Beretania Park on Saturday, August 13th from 10:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.
