This year’s festival will spotlight China and Southeast Asia culminating with the Celebration of Youth Concert on Sunday.
This is the thirtieth year for a festival of this kind in Fort Wayne. Admission to the festival is $5 for adults and free for children 18 and under and participation in most of the activities is free of charge.
The performance schedule will be posted on this page the last week in February.
Student artwork will be on display in the main exhibit hall of the Grand Wayne Center. Art boards and sculpture garden tables are arranged by school.
FAME white T-shirts with a Destination China logo may be purchased and colored with fabric markers as a keepsake of this year’s festival.
The popular Imaginarium make-it, take-it craft area, featuring theme related projects will be in the center of the main exhibit hall.
Extremely popular last year – so we will be “hunting” again.
