Oregon Asian Celebration Joins with the Obon and Taiko Drumming Festival for a “Strength in Unity Festival”

After postponing the Oregon Asian Celebration’s Night Market this month due to the county’s extreme risk designation, event organizers are now pleased to announce a new date and location for this popular Asian cultural heritage event.
“The Asian Celebration will join another long-standing Asian cultural event in Eugene – the Obon and Taiko Festival on July 31st at Alton Baker Park,” says David Tam, the Celebration’s event director.
Both events are held annually in Eugene. The Asian Celebration enters its 36th consecutive year and the Obon and Taiko Festival enters its 32nd consecutive year. “We are very excited to work with the Obon and Taiko festival to create an exciting atmosphere celebrating Asian cultural heritage in the arts, music, dance, folk art, and more. A marketplace, demonstrations of martial arts and crafts, and a variety of Asian food carts will also be included,” Tam said. The event will begin at 10:00 a.m. and continue until 10:00 p.m.
KLCC’s Brian Bull reports on the new date for the Oregon Asian Celebration, which has joined the annual Obon and Taiko Drumming Festival following setbacks related to COVID-19.
