On May 8, 2021, the first event in the Multicultural Festival series to celebrate Asian and Pacific Heritage month and against the recent outbreak of anti-Asian violence in the United States was held at the historic Union Station. The event was hosted by the City of Montgomery‘s Department of Culture Affair and co-organized by the CAAC (The Central Alabama Association Of Chinese), International Language and Culture College of Troy University, and other Asian societies.

The festival’s activities include presentations of Asia-Pacific culture, taste of Chinese cuisine and music/dance performances to showcase multi-cultural integration to visitors. Crispy chicken from local Chinese Restaurant Mr. Chen was a favor dish and many visitors came back for more. The enthusiastic and intense performance of the Birmingham waist drum team became the eye-catching work of the audience. The professional Chinese folk dancing by Yuyan Dance Ensemble and the vivid ensemble music of Jiemin/Jasmin Castillo (mother and daughter) also attracted many audiences.

After the heartwarming performance, CAAC president Dr. Xuejun Shen participated in a panel discussion along with representatives from other AAPI organizations to exchange ideas and cultivated friendships. All praised and thanked the city for such a wonderful opportunity and look forward to work closely in the future.
