Taiwanese American Cultural Festival in Union Square, May 8

As part of the Asian Pacific American Heritage Month, Union Square will be filled with food and performances highlighting Taiwanese culture on May 8. Held in the heart of San Francisco’s shopping area, the Taiwanese American Cultural Festival will be open from 10am to 6pm.

The main theme of this year's cultural festival is “Vibrant Taiwan." Taking center stage will be performances from well-known Taiwanese American musicians and dancers from the Department of Dance at the National Taiwan Arts University. The group will also perform again on May 9 at the Yerba Buena Gardens, San Francisco. The festival will pull at the heartstrings of those who miss the sounds, sights and tastes of Taiwan.

Come discover Taiwan through the marriage of traditional and innovative dance performances. With ten pieces in total, each one represents the various cultural aspects of Taiwan. There will also be many folk art demonstrations along with traditional Taiwanese food. Exhibition booths will have Taiwanese products, such as orchids, snacks, technology and art works.

The event is organized by the Taiwanese American Federation of Northern California. There will be free bus shuttles between the South Bay and downtown San Francisco from 9am to 6pm. To check the schedule and different locations to catch the shuttles, please visit the festival website: Admission to the festival is free.
