The Asian marketplace has numerous arts and crafts vendors and the performing arts stage features both traditional and contemporary Asian and Asian-American performers of martial arts, dance, and rock and blues music.
Each year, the village showcases the cultures of different Asian Pacific communities and includes an intimate demonstration area known as Gateway to Asia.
