The Southwest is moving east as Chinese Week returns once again to downtown Phoenix. As always, the highlight of this community-based celebration is the Chinese Culture and Cuisine Festival, a three-day immersion into the sights, sounds, history, and flavor of Chinese culture.
Here, guests can enjoy volleyball tournaments, a mahjong booth, taiji tournaments, a go weiqi open, table tennis tournaments, food pavilions, Taipei dragon boat displays, chengdu performances, a koi fish exhibit, art exhibitions, and history booths. Closing out the week’s festivities will be a decadent Chinese New Year banquet.
The Chinese Culture and Cuisine Festival will take place Friday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Margaret T. Hance Park, 1202 North Third Street. Admission to the festival is free, but prices vary per activity. Visit www.phoenixchineseweek.org for more information.
