If you hadn’t heard about the Asian Food Fest before, you have definitely been missing out. Luckily, it’s not too late for this year’s mouth watering Asian food selection.

The vibrant community festival is held over two days, the 14th and 15th of May in Cincinnati, Ohio.

The festival began in 2010 when a group of friends decided they wanted to spread their passion and love of Asian food and the attached culture through the streets of Cincinnati. They began the festival in order to do this and raise money for Care 2 Share, a non-profit organization which provides funding, ideas and support to Vietnamese people. Since then, its popularity has expanded, and this year the organizers say they are expecting around 20,000 visitors.

Many of the stalls began their careers at the Asian Food Festival and are now big names around the city, such as Saigon Subs and Rolls, who will be offering their famous banh mi, Vietnamese sandwiches.

The organizers are hoping to support up-and-coming restaurateurs and amateur chefs and hope that introducing a “secret menu,” will allow festival goers the chance to experience a traditional home cooked meal.

All profits from the two-day festival will go towards the Asian American Cultural Association of Cincinnati and encourage plans for future Asian cultural events to occur.
