Sacramento's Chinatown Culture Fair
Celebrating the Historic Chinatown

The Confucius Church of Sacramento and the Chinatown Culture Fair Committee presents the 2012 Chinatown Street Fair on Sunday, September 23, 2012 from 11 am to 4 pm to take place at the historic Chinatown Mall between 3rd and 5th Streets and I and J Streets. The theme of the culture fair is "Bridging the Past to the Future.

The festival celebrates Chinese culture, arts, and heritage. Last year's fair was supported by the City of Sacramento, Councilman Ray Tretheway, Sacramento Convention and Visitors Bureau, Sacramento Downtown Partnership, Russian-American Media, East Indian American radio and over 12 Chinese organizations in the Asian American community. Featuring live entertainment, a variety of multi-lingual booths, Asian food and beverages, and special performances, this promises to showcase the Chinatown Mall as an exciting venue in the Sacramento area.

The historic Chinatown is destined to be a vibrant link to Sacramento's Downtown and The Railyards. It promises to be a prime location where families come to enjoy the arts, cultural and historical heritage of our Chinese-American community. During the Gold Rush, this area was largely populated with Chinese immigrants. In the 1960s, the Sacramento Redevelopment Agency began the establishment of a Chinatown Mall in the area where the Confucius Temple had just been built. Today, Chinese family association halls, elders, and a Chinese language school help keep Chinese culture alive.

Chinatown Culture Fair Comittee is a volunteer-supported, civic group. All contributions and in-kind services are tax deductible and go entirely to support the Culture Fair and future Chinatown events. By working together as a community, the Chinatown Culture Fair Comittee's mission is to celebrate Sacramento's rich and diverse heritage. For more information on sponsorships download this year's:
