Year of the Tiger

During the month of February, travelers to San Antonio, and locals alike, flock to the annual Asian Festival at the Institute of Texan Cultures.

The Asian Festival brings together organizations rich in Eastern culture, showcasing their respective cultures with an educational and entertaining approach. The event includes martial arts demonstrations, botanicals and mouthwatering cuisine from more than a dozen Far Eastern countries – such as Chinese, Japanese, Thai, Vietnamese, Pakistani, Filipino, and Polynesian. Dance groups will entertain you. Cooking demonstrations will tease your taste buds. Activities for the younger visitors include making paper lanterns, origami, and more. From songs and dances to bonsai and Ikebana, from jujitsu and tai chi to chopsticks and origami, visitors have a special opportunity to learn the "how and why" of many age-old customs, and thus gain a greater appreciation of them and of those who practice them.
