I attended the Fiesta Asia Street Fair held in Washington D.C. for the fourth time on Saturday, May 16, 2015. The annual street festival is sponsored by the Asia Heritage Foundation. They usually hold a smaller festival in Silver Spring at the beginning of May and have the larger, main event in D.C. during the middle of May. The festival consists of five stages with various performances that go on throughout the day. There are also plenty of informational tents, ethnic food stalls, and vendors that lined streets.
Here are a few photos taken along the streets:
I didn't spend much time at the music stage where they brought on various musicians to perform. Here are just two photos that I snapped:
The next stage is the Middle Eastern stage where there were a lot of Middle Eastern-style dancers, music, and belly dancing.
Next up was the Martial Arts area where various demonstrations where held.
Near the middle of the street fair was what seemed to be an educational stage. I saw some cooking lessons going on and they also had belly dancing lessons going on at one point.
Lastly, at the other end of the street near the capitol building was the Cultural Stage where various ethnic groups came on to perform their traditional dances.
