AADay was initiated by Asian American Association of Boston in 2011 and was later joined by many Chinese American community members. In September 2016, Asian American Day was approved by both the city of Boston and the state of Massachusetts. The event will be celebrated on the second Saturday of September every year.
Last year, the sixth Asian American Day was held at Boston Common with over 110 food vendors and booths to showcase their businesses and culture. The event attracted 30,000 people and 6 other ethnic groups, including members of the Italian, Korean and Cambodian communities. The next day, a theater performance was held in Cary Hall in Lexington.
This year's AAday will be the 7th annual AAday, and we sincerely invite you to come attend this event!
