On February 16, 1986, the first Oregon Asian Celebration was launched successfully, attracting several hundred attendees. Over the past 30 years, the event has since evolved from humble beginnings to a cherished institution of the Lane County community. All of the proceeds earned from the event each year go back into the community by way of scholarships and grants provided to other local non-profits.
The Oregon Asian Celebration is one of the largest volunteer-driven events on the West Coast, attracting thousands of patrons each year. Building on the enduring success of the Oregon Asian Celebration, the organizers now envision the establishment of a cultural center that will serve as a hub to facilitate cross-cultural exchange. The center would offer educational programs, performances, community gatherings, and art shows. Like the Oregon Asian Celebration, born from the minds of a few people, so also can a cultural center become more than a vision. Your continued sup-port, attendance and donations will help make this cultural center become real and an integral part of the Lane County community.
