Cleveland Asian Festival specials for AsiaTown Businesses

For Immediate Release

February 1, 2017

Cleveland, OH – The Cleveland Asian Festival is a grassroots effort to highlight AsiaTown while celebrating diversity and Asian culture in Northeast Ohio. It is a major reason for the resurgence of and growth in Cleveland’s AsiaTown community and its diversity.

When the volunteer founders of the Cleveland Asian Festival created the event eight years ago their main goals were to showcase Asian culture and promote the AsiaTown neighborhood of Cleveland.  The Cleveland Asian Festival is still run entirely by volunteers as a labor of love for their culture, neighborhood and city.

Continuing with the theme of ‘Bringing Cultural & Economic Growth to AsiaTown’ the Cleveland Asian Festival board is offering special advertising rates to businesses located in AsiaTown.

5,000 copies of the Cleveland Asian Festival program guide will be distributed prior to and during the event scheduled for May 20-21, 2017.  Businesses located in AsiaTown, who are 1st time advertisers, will receive special pricing in the popular booklet.

Cleveland Asian Festival co-founder Johnny Wu states, “The Cleveland Asian Festival is already an economic engine for AsiaTown with almost 50,000 attendees last year and over $2 million spent in the neighborhood.  This special offer is another way to increase business for AsiaTown companies.”

The program guide will be available in print and online before during and after the Festival and is used throughout the year as a valuable resource for people looking to eat, shop or do other business in AsiaTown.
