Fine China

Phoenix, like other American metropolises, holds a wide array of cultural diversity. Just about any ethnic food, music, or art form from all stretches of the earth can be found if you look hard enough. But you don't have to look too hard if your driving near Loop 202 and 44th Street.

That's where you will find the 23rd annual Phoenix Chinese Week's Culture and Cuisine Festival. Three days are dedicated to sights and sounds that originated in the far east's largest country. Entertainment includes traditional Chinese folk dances, music, and martial arts performances. Become a spectator of sport in tournaments of table tennis, volleyball, and tai chi. Celebrate the Year of the Snake with games, activities. A koi exhibit around out the must-sees. But don't forget the real reason you're there: food.
