We are honored to have the support of the Arts Alliance Yamhill County, Yamhill County Cultural Coalition, and many local businesses to bring this inaugural event to the community.

Come join us in celebrating the start of the Lunar New Year and experience the rich culture and traditions of the Asian American community in McMinnville.

ABOUT THE ASIAN HERITAGE ASSOCIATION

The Asian Heritage Association (AHA) is a new organization that consists of Asian Americans who live, work and play in Yamhill County, as well as friends and neighbors who share our goals. Our goals are to strengthen the local Asian American community, celebrate Asian American cultures, and promote local Asian American history.

We aim to increase awareness and respectful appreciation of the diverse Asian American cultures represented in Yamhill County through public arts projects and educational events.
