Kumoricon at Oregon Asian Celebration

Posted February 2, 2012

Stop by to visit Kumoricon’s activities at the Oregon Asian Celebration on the Feb. 18-19 weekend in Eugene. We’ll be doing cat-ear making, video gaming, and karaoke, and join us for a cosplay meetup at 3pm on Saturday!

History

The Oregon Asian Celebration is the state’s longest running and successful Asian festival of its kind. The Oregon Asian Celebration began in 1986 in Eugene, Oregon as an Asian community celebration to better acquaint Asian Americans to one another. The celebration was also a way to instill cultural pride and appreciation for Asian heritage. Due to its popularity within various Asian groups and the importance of sharing with the broader community at large, the event expanded to become a destination point event. More than 18,000 visitors partake in this weekend celebration!

Mission

The mission of the Oregon Asian Celebration is to enhance appreciation of Asian and Asian American cultural heritage by featuring a broad representation of Asian entertainment, foods, crafts, art and other aspects of Asian cultures that are appealing to all ages. The event takes place at the spacious Lane Events Center at the fairgrounds in Eugene, OR. Partner activities are often scheduled on other days as part of the festival.
