This Year of the Dog marks the return of the Asian Heritage Street Celebration, which completed a twelve-year cycle, and took a hiatus in 2017. CCC is partnering with Sunday Streets SF, which has been reclaiming car-congested streets for community health by transforming them into temporary car-free spaces for all to enjoy since 2008.
Join Sunday Streets SF, the Chinese Culture Center of SF, the Asian Art Museum, other community partners, and your neighbors for this fun and free community event celebrating Asian Pacific American culture and community on Sunday, May 6 from 11am-4pm in the Tenderloin and Chinatown area.
Performers, artists, small businesses, nonprofits, sponsors, city agencies and community groups are invited to host activities, showcase their work, and provide information to the public.
