Asian Culture Festival 2018 in Homestead, Florida

We went to the  28th Annual Asian Culture Festival that took place at Fruit & Spice Park, and it was lots of fun. This event offers a virtual day trip to Asia featuring a variety of Asian arts, crafts, entertainment, plants and exotic cuisine. I went mainly for the food and incense and had onigiri for the first time in my life after watching countless people on YouTube eating it.

This posting is mostly about the pictures – a visual story. I did not know what most of the food was. Even though we got there early, it was already full of people with some food stalls having long lines, so I did not get to taste many things. We did wallow in the beautiful aromas of all the delicious dishes surrounding us, and that was enough for me.

The Asian Culture Festival is a must visit – it is unusual, entertaining, and educational. The Fruit & Spice Park itself is lovely and open year-round – a perfect place to go to chillax and commune with nature.
